TVs came in cabinets, and often included a record player and radio, too. Note the Rabbit Ears antenna - we kids spent hours moving them up, down and sideways at our parents' direction, trying to bring in a perfect picture, and get rid of the static in the sound!

Since my mother worked a lot my sister and I got to watch our fair share of tv shows. Because of this I feel like our gender is represented in some of what television has told us. We enjoyed our Disney channel, our sports channels, but a lot of criminal shows, Our ideals of beauty were the commercials we saw, the way female actresses were portrayed, etc.
