1950′s Video ‘Educates’ Doctors About Menopause [Video]

If June Cleaver had the need for a consultation with her family doctor regarding her “change of life”, it might have gone something like this.

Listen for the phrase “senile ovaries.”

It’s hard for me to believe that this video was offered to doctors in the 1950′s to educate them on on female menopause. It was produced and distributed by a large drug company called the Schering Corporation, known today as Merck.

Can you imagine treating hot flashes and mood swings with radiation and sedatives in today’s world? And what’s up with those “senile ovaries?”

How many outdated cliches and stereotypes did you notice in this 1950′s video?
