In the 1910s, women wore dresses in which "the waistline essentially disappeared," then got the right to vote.
In the 1960s, women rocked some craaaazy shifts, then ended the war and gained reproductive freedom.
Coincidence? You decide!
But I hardly find it surprising that we made our biggest steps forward in times when we could dress in the height of fashion, be comfortable enough to work, AND have plenty of room for a nice pasta dinner. Followed by a lovely piece of pie.
We've got the world at our feet, ladies, and pockets to carry everything we need.
Long live the revolution! And pie! And the shift!
