College Girls: Bluestockings, Sex Kittens, and Co-eds, Then and Now

Lynn Peril


The writer of Pink Think takes on a twentieth-century icon: the varsity girl.

A geek who wears glasses? Or a intercourse kitten in a teddy? this is often the twin imaginative and prescient of the school woman, the original American archetype born whilst the age-old clash over teaching girls was once eventually laid to relaxation. collage was once a spot the place girls came across vainness, and but pictures in pop culture mirrored a lingering mistrust of the proficient lady. therefore such lofty cultural expressions as Sex Kittens visit College (1960) and a raft of naughty pictorials in men’s magazines.

As in Pink Think, Lynn Peril combines women’s heritage and well known culture―peppered with pleasant examples of femoribilia from the flip of the 20 th century in the course of the 1970s―in an clever and witty learn of the school woman, the 1st lady to take that socially debatable step towards academic fairness.
