To The Moon, Alice! and more Politically Incorrect Art

Back in the 50’s women were still treated as chattel by many men in the US.  Sexism was common in advertising and on television.  One line that sticks in my head from Jackie Gleason’s show The Honeymooners was from the character he played, Ralph Kramden.  Ralph would shake his fist at his wife Alice and say “to the moon, Alice”.  We’ve come a long way since then.
