Real Influential Women Role Models (Real and Fictitious): Alice Kramden
Alice Kramden(The Honeymooners) As bus driver Ralph Kramden’s (Jackie Gleason) wife, Alice Kramden (Audrey Meadows) represents your stereotypical fifties wife. She cooks and dotes on her husband and willingly listens to him as he rampages through the door. However, she is not as submissive as your typical fifties wife. She stands up to Ralph with a sharp tongue and strong eyes without domestic violence and eventually unlocks every secret Ralph keeps from her. Not only that, she is the one who handles the finances. She is breath of fresh air when compared to the cutesy Trixie (Joyce Randolph), wife of Norton (Art Carney).
