In the late 1940's women started to become full-fledged members of the work force, and dressed like it.

I think part of my weakness for 1940s hair is how *neat and pretty* it is at the same time as it's *securely stowed.*  Pin these styles well enough (and maybe even pomade them a little, I don't know), and you don't have to be terrified of wind.  You can go on about your business without forever worrying about your hair.  And that's.  ~relieved sigh~  That's worth somethin'.

You don't understand how much I love this picture. Something about it. I think it shows the relief and celebration that the war was over. And how to his day, no one knows who they were. They kept it a mystery to keep the imagination and magic the picture shows. A picture is really worth a thousand words..

This is one of my favorite pictures of all time! --- The Kiss, by Alfred Eisenstaedt - an American sailor spontaneously kissing a young nurse on VJ Day in Times Square, New York City, August 1945

"rebellion"

feministquotes: ““Other people will call me a rebel, but I just feel like I’m living my life and doing what I want to do. Sometimes people call that rebellion, especially when you’re a woman”.

Rebellion Thank you.............This makes so much sense

“Disobedience, in the eyes of anyone who has read history, is man’s original virtue. It is through disobedience and rebellion that progress has been made.
