I’m all locked down with nowhere to go – but that hasn’t killed my lust for fashion
Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett
Modern feminism, eh?
100 years ago men said that women were only interested in fripperies like fashion. 50 years ago women proclaimed that they were strong, independent and interested in the important things in life, not the fripperies. Today the self-proclaimed feminist is back to the 1920s and flappers talking about hemlines.
It’s as with that thing about periods over the same time. Can’t employ women old boy, they go mad once a month! The Dworkins and others pointed out that this was bullshit because of course women have been dealing with life while menstruating for as long as the species has existed. Today the demand is that extra days off must be granted in order to have periods.
Can’t help thinking there’s a certain regression going on here.
