I am comparing the theme of the conformity for the book 1984 and the history during the 1950s. How did conformity come to be in the 1950s? I am not sure if it was because of the fear of communism which started it. Who came with the idea that women should be housewives? Are there any other ways in which the people of the 1950s conformed? Why do they feel that they need to conform? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
