A Time So Long Gone By

Given longevity of life, Jackie would have continued to grow with the times, just as we all do. Is it fair to judge a time so long gone by? That was then... this is now. Food for thought, this article quoted from AP:

NEW YORK (AP) — Caroline Kennedy says her daughters were "horrified" by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' old-fashioned view of the role of women in taped interviews released this week.
In the 1964 interviews with Arthur Schlesinger Jr., the young widow described her marriage as "a rather terribly Victorian or Asiatic relationship" and said she got all her opinions from her husband, President John F. Kennedy.
Caroline Kennedy said Wednesday on ABC's "Good Morning America" that her two daughters were "absolutely horrified" when they listened to that portion of the tapes.
She said they asked: "Did she really think that?"
But Kennedy says the tapes are "just a snapshot of a world we barely recognize."
The audio recordings are being released Wednesday along with a book, "Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life With John F. Kennedy."
