Annie Nichols: an unexpected addition to the New Order.....

As you know, Elly's friend Annie used to be key supporting character who slowly but surely disappeared from the strip. Her role was that of the traditional housewife who was confused by Elly's need to want to do more than raise children and clean house. She seemed certain that by doing so, Elly risked her marriage; this made her husband's adultery all the more horrid. Living right and getting screwed over anyway messed her up good; it also got her to admit that there may be something to this Womens' Lib stuff after all. Lynn's discomfort at having to depict a couple actually discussing their problems in a mature fashion meant that the character became a "Who's that" instead of a "Who's who". One might expect that she not even figure in the New Order of things. However, it seems that this is not the case. She pretty much has to reappear somehow because a lot of the early material does feature her. She will probably manifest herself as a woman who suspects her husband of cheating on her and hopes to preclude that by doing the whole Perfect Housewife thing.
