My Years As a Bra Burner
I actually never burned my bra or any other article of clothing.
I was a Feminist, however. It was the times. you understand. I am one of the first subscribers to
"MS. Magazine." I wish I had kept the copies of that first year. They were exquisitely representative of the changing times.
This Doonesbury comic was published in the early seventies. I was attending Cal State at the time. I was taking a class called "Women in Literature" from a guy with a superbly raised consciousness. He was married to a woman who kept her maiden name! Un. Be. Lieve. Able.
The comic was clipped and stayed on my fridge for years!
This little conversation in a sand box was, and still is, my favorite Doonesbury comic.
My son gave the 100 pound book to me for Christmas. I found the sand box kids immediately.
