Which American daytime soap of the '80s emphasized the damsel-in-distress trope the most?

DAYS for sure.  The women on that show were always in danger and being saved by their man. 


When I was a kid GH and DAYS were my favorite soaps.  And on GH you routinely had women in on the action, capable.  Anna, Bobbie, Monica, Felicia, Tracy, Tiffany, Lucy etc...while sometimes in danger they were rarely damsels in distress.


DAYS of the same 10 years was full of them.  Huge difference in how the women were written.
