1963 Andy Griffith show makes a bold statement about women’s rights

In the episode at the link below, Andy and his high school sweetheart are reunited. Andy reminds her that they had always wanted to be together and she agrees. but she’s an established career woman in Chicago.

In a move that opposes social norms of the time, the episode gave a glimpse at a woman making a choice to live in the city of her choice, and living the life she wants instead of staying in Mayberry to marry Andy.

in this part of the episode a powerful statement was made in 1963, and I would love to have heard the reactions of those who originally watched it.

Just watch this remarkable scene at the link below to see how they put it together: #Respect
