Publisher's Comments

Considering gender segregation, both implicit and explicit, this text explores the workplace and home by linking appliances and business equipment to their life in culture. The social, economic and sexual meanings of objects revealed through advertising, photo-journalism, film stills and an analysis of changing design styles. The text should appeal to those interested in advertising, industrial design, American studies or women's studies.
