women were free

In a Newsweek "special science report" (March 7, 1960), there's this:

"Who could ask for anything more? The educated American woman has her brains, her good looks, her car, her freedom... freedom to choose a straight-from-Paris dress (original or copy), or to attend a class in ceramics or calculus; freedom to determine the timing of her next baby or who shall be the next President of the United States."
