During World War II, women entered the workforce in record numbers, but after the war ended they were expected to return to the home. Innovations in technology during the 1940s and 1950s, such as the electric washing machine, combined with a popular culture that also idealized the nuclear family (reflected in the television shows Father Knows Best and Leave it to Beaver) contributed to the image of woman-as-happy-homemaker.
