Hi, I am looking for someone to write an article on the role of women in the first season of i love lucy Paper must be at least 2500 words. Please, no plagiarized work! Astoundingly, the show not only has the entertainment value but also a very rich cultural critique point, having been set in the 1950s. The show has, however, been accused of being in favor of patriarchal norms, hence, degrading to the women. Indeed, when viewed from the perspective of contemporary times, the accusations have quite an undeniable legitimacy (Andrews and Watson 5). Lucy and Ethel, her best friend, are more often than not, consumed in a series of petty material desires. frequently, they are depicted as being incompetent. Their considered-more-sensible and authoritative husbands are often the ones who constantly clean up their messes. With all these, the question that remains is what message actually the film depicts the most. In spite of the outward adherence of the show to the patriarchal ideologies of the time, it remained Lucille Ball’s vehicle for empowering women, within the world of the show as well as outside (Andrews 8).
