Single Woman Frankie

Shelley appeared in the telefilm Single Bars, Single Women in 1984. She played Frankie, a truck stop waitress looking to move on from her former flame. If the '70s was a time when women were fighting for equal rights, the '80s was a time when women were getting equal rights and trying to figure out how to go about it. Gender roles were changing then, for both men and women. Women as head of the family and stay-at-home dads were new and bizarre concepts. The dating scene changed as well and this film was all about that.
