"I feel no more like a man now than I did in long skirts, unless it be that enjoying more freedom and cutting off the fetters is to be like a man. I suppose in that respect we are more mannish, for we know that in dress, as in all things else, we have been and are slaves, while man in dress and all things else is free." - Amelia Bloomer
I do not consider myself much of a feminist, but I was taken aback by the recent presidential election bringing back some archaic stereotypes. A suit like this makes me think of how Mitt Romney justified - no equal pay, but he’ll get you home in time to cook dinner.
I wonder if Ameila Bloomer would be contented to see where we are now?
