But now with the reboot and watching a 20/20 documentary on its role in society back then I see it in a new light.
I giess it really wasn't that acceptable back then for a married woman with kids to work a low paying job.
You could be a teacher because the hours fit having kids, a lawyer or doctor because these were admirable careers. But anything else in my community other than executive wasn’t okay.
Due to the reboot ik watching the firdt season and one of the kid’s teacher shames Rosanne for not being present at home after school and being late to the meeting at 4:00pm and wants to reschedule the meeting.
Roseanne has to tell her, look Lady I took an hour of unpaid leave from work to get her we’re having this meeting. And the meeting is pointless, basically a new teacher who can’t handle her class.
I’m glad there’s a reboot because I think the show is more relevant than ever. A family in Indiana struggling to get by while raising food kids.
It’s a message I needed to hear. My struggles aren’t those struggles and I don’t think enough of us are hearing the struggle of middle America.
