STEPFORD wives from the 1950's and 60's are performing history's most sexist exercise programme. Like the eerie fake robotic wives from the 1972 black comedy The Stepford Wives these “perfect” females from yesteryear prove that women have always felt pressure to stay trim. On the other hand some men may argue they are just doing what women do best - multitasking. Looking ridiculous as they perform household chores at the same time as bending over backwards in a bid to stay slim these wives are pleasing their men by struggling for the body beautiful AND the beating dust from the living room rug. Striking a pose one blond-bombshell waters the garden while doing a high kick while her fellow wife performs a lunge while throwing out the rubbish.
