Well, we've made a lateral move, at best; we're now dealing with "John Patterson, Rockribbed Neanderthal".
Panel 1: We see Elly on the couch with John. She sighs that so many women are making their mark on history these days.
Panel 2: While she sits on her ass, there are women fighting for equal rights and an end to poverty.
Panel 3: This baffles the dimwit she's married to so much, he poses the question of why she would want to raise consciousness....
Panel 4: ...when society still needs people who can raise kids.
Summary: This is yet another reminder of John's refusal to see that his viewpoint isn't the only one that exists. We can look forward to his sullen muttering at being reminded that his opinions are obsolete.
