Femineered!

Now this is how you encourage young girls to study engineering: by showing them refrigerators! I think it's time we brought back this neologism. "The Army Corps of Femineers!" Can you imagine the uniforms? Who wouldn't want to belong?

The Little Foxes Club

image

I can't find too much information on the "Little Foxes Club," whose mission was to promote African-American female beauty. In 1958, they had a beauty contest in Detroit.

Original article here.

And they were mentioned in this 1966 cheesecake photo.

I can only imagine the loud controversy such an organization would bring down upon itself in these times.

Apache Dance



I don't watch Dancing with the Stars. Is this kind of dance included? If not, why? It would liven up the competitions immensely, I wager. With signed waivers, real daggers could be used.

Did this ever work? And why did the tie turn the wearer into an African-American when activated, as shown at the bottom of the ad?
