Yes, indeed. Jack Williamson's Darker Than You Think was set in the same period, and when a woman draped in furs and carrying a kitten in her pouch shows up claiming to be a cub reporter, our hero - a seasoned reporter- accepts this obvious socialite as such without question.

Oh, yes, reading Rex Stout's Archie Goodwin interact with females is a lot
more informative than reading a text on "attitudes towards women in the
1960s" or, bless the flying spaghetti monster, taking Hollywood's version
