Those options weren't widely available in 1969 (or 1880).
Add to that, women used to have to have their husband, father or even brother act as guarantor for any financial lending.

I remember my dad giving my mum an M&S charge card for her birthday in the late 1970s, so that she could buy herself a new winter coat. It was 2mths before he realised that she was also putting all the food shopping on the card.
