    Question How were female characters depicted in the 1950s literature?

    Were they "damsels in distress" or like Bond girls, more self-reliant?

    "damsels in distress" were very much in favour. Chivalry's hayday continued. Then emerged the self-reliant Bond girls putting an end to gallantry and replaced by blatant male chauvnism.
    Eager to watch the trends of the world & to nurture in the youth who carry the future world on their shoulders a right sense of values.
