    Although a lot of us worked outside the home in the 50s, the stereotype was "Leave it to Beaver" and the stay-at-home, apron-wearing Mom. Also, at that time, men vastly outnumbered women on college campuses. Today I think most colleges have more women than men.

    What do you think about gender stereotypes today?
