"Consider Her Ways": A Bizarre Collectivist-Feminist Dystopia

Although"Consider Her Ways" can best be described as science fiction, it first appeared as an episode in the"Alfred Hitchcock Hour" in the 1960s. It it easily the strangest, and one of the best, shows in the entire run of that mystery-murder series. Produced in the era now widely associated with the television show,"Mad Men," it has some surprising, and thoughtful, things to say about both feminism and collectivism.

Very interesting stuff. That was based on John Wyndham's novel of the same name, I do believe - the same author who was behind the dystopian The Chrysalids, as well as Day of the Triffids and The Midwich Cuckoos (aka Village of the Damned). Thanks for a great post/link!
