Here's a very stylish United Airlines stewardess in 1970.
The sole purpose of airline stewardesses in the 1960’s was to serve and make sure they looked exceptionally good while catering to passengers. Now being a server in one thing... being required to wear a uniform is not unheard of... however, airlines had a habit of objectifying women. These were airplanes, not "Hooters". So in 1971, the National Organization for Women (NOW) protested against the airlines, accused them of being “sexist and degrading to women”. They focused on the National Airlines with their “Fly Me” slogan in particular. Not only did they scold airline for treating stewardesses as sex objects, but they also demanded that men should be hired and portrayed in company advertising too.
