Tomboys were a trend 100 years ago, but mostly to bring up the birth rate for white babies

Always disappointing to see feminists who were supporters of eugenic principles. I read The Yellow Wallpaper (I expect it influenced Plaths’ Bell Jar) many years ago but knew nothing of Gilman.

I suspect that Hepburn was accepted as a lifelong Tomboy because she was stunning looking and a charismatic personality. For us mere mortals it tend not to be so rewarding.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
