She was one of the only women in the class that was not a stay-at-home wife and someone of the lessons seemed beneath her. But she did need someone to talk to and was overwhelmed with housework. So, she listened intently to her classmates and learned that having an open mind and taking a new approach (for her) was helpful. And being a little more feminine was pretty fun. Maybe the 1950s housewife wasn't so hopelessly clueless after all.
