Stepford wife


A popular term for a wife who is attractive, dutiful, and subservient, which was achieved in the film, The Stepford Wives, by converting the women of the fictional town of Stepford into robots whose neural circuitry had been altered to make them passive.

The term Stepford syndrome has been applied to women who undergo plastic surgery to achieve a perfect Hollywood face or body; others prefer to apply the term to women who have been made subservient by circumstances.

Despite filling a lexical void, it is obviously not a syndrome in the medical sense.
