Abstract: With the recent revival of women's liberation movements, woman's place in American society and the "role" she should play are subjects of considerable debate and discussion. American culture has undergone rapid technological and social change during the twentieth century, and women's roles have been affected by the change. Komarovsky (1950) believed that women have become a "social problem" because technological and social changes since the Industrial Revolution have upset the old equilibrium without as yet replacing it with another. This situation results in contradictory practices and beliefs with some old attitudes persisting in the face of new realities which have long since rendered such practices, beliefs, and attitudes meaningless.
