Tupperware's Influence in the Postwar Era

In a PBS interview with University of Minnesota historian Elaine Tyler May, Professor May discusses women and work in the postwar era. A social historian, Professor May has written several social histories, including Homeward Bound: American Families in the Cold War Era and Barren in the Promised Land: Childless Americans and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Tupperware was the pioneer in home-based businesses, allowing women to extend their homemaker role. It was one of several occupations that homemakers could do at home, in their spare time, that became careers. They could sell products to women through their homes or friendship networks, and they could make money; they could become part of a business operation.

The Start of an American Classic

Tupperware brand products made their debut in 1946 -- the start of a revolutionary post-war period in history. For 50 years, Tupperware brand products have closely followed rollercoaster trends from the suburban movement to the 60s feminist revolution to 90s "cocooning" continually adding a unique organizational touch to the lives and kitchens across the nation.

Just prior to its consumer introduction in 1946, inventor Earl Tupper's plastics like the materials of many manufacturers were dedicated to the war effort. The versatility and convenience of Tupper's "miracle" products helped to launch the plastics revolution of the next decade. Tupper's first consumer plastic products the Wonderlier Bowl and Bell Tumbler offered a unique benefit that traditional food containers did not they were lighter and less likely to break than traditional glass and crockery.

With the onset of the post-war "baby boom," women dedicated themselves to caring for their growing families. The "Tupperized" kitchen was born ... a kitchen that was well organized and neat, and featured a variety of containers that replaced unsightly open packages and that kept food fresh longer.
