"During this period, the telephone helped create a physical separation of women's private sphere and men's public sphere as it helped the isolation of the home and individual women within them. Having the telephone created a sense of connection which allowed them to keep in touch with others, making them cope with the separation of private sphere easier. Having the telephone also served as a distraction that allowed them to forget about the fact that they're only allowed to leave the house twice within three months, which also helped increase the isolation of these housewives from the public"
This ^ in "Gender Politics" is utter nonsense. What is it doing here? To claim that before the telephone women were "only allowed to leave the house twice within three months" is such obvious laughable BS that I'm surprised that nobody else has raised this matter.
