Though the goal of this ad is to outlined the woman as a breadwinner, it also highlights her as doing it all and also coming home to please her husband with her cooking and taking care of everything in-between. The ad is also framed in such a way that it is trying to convince the husband to buy her that perfume and promises him that treating her won’t stop her from being, essentially, wonder woman. Though the intention may have been positive and progressive at the time, it still upholds some very problematic stereotypes that put a lot of work on the shoulders on the women while all of the power seems to fall into the hands of the men (husbands).
