Women That Fought For Equality
This iconic civil rights photograph of two fifteen-year-old girls, perfectly encapsulates the South at the time. This photo, taken by journalist Will Counts, shows Elizabeth Eckford, one of the nine African-American students who were denied entrance to Little Rock’s Central High School in 1957, while Hazel Bryan Massery, shouted racial epithets at her.
Meet Kathrine Switzer
The first woman to run the Boston Marathon (illegally) 50 years ago. This historic photo shows her getting attacked by an official who tried to remove her from the 1967 Boston Marathon.
Term Blonde Bombshell Is Born
If you’ve seen the classic film Blazing Saddles then you know who Robyn Hilton is. This photo of her talking with Johnny Carson on the Tonight Show way back in 1974 is when many say the term “blonde bombshell” was first used.
Jamie Lee Curtis in Perfect
The 1985 romantic drama “Perfect” starring John Travolta and Jamie Lee Curtis didn’t get much love from the critics, but you should still watch it. Mainly because Jamie (in her prime) wears close to nothing while teaching the most intense aerobics class ever… and who wants to miss that?!
SAS Airlines Uniform Check
A 1959 photo of a Scandinavian Airlines employee checking the skirt length of stewardess’s uniform. What do you think, a little short or good to go?
Sophia Loren and Jayne Mansfield
The side-eye seen ’round the world. This 1957 photo of Sophia Loren and Jayne Mansfield caused controversy. Loren (black dress) was a newcomer who just skyrocketed to stardom in Europe when she became the most photographed artist at the 1955 Cannes Film Festival. Two years later there was a Beverly Hills party which was meant to officially welcome Loren to Hollywood…but the Italian bombshell had her spotlight unexpectedly stolen by Mansfield. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Loren confirmed she was thinking exactly what it looks like she was thinking.
