Oh the irony

Just a quick one folks.

In an effort to respond to a question from one of my professors about The Great Gatsby, I wanted to find out some of the history on women's suffrage.

I ended up on on a timeline of Woman' s Suffrage (link coming in a sec, hold on). So Here is what I looked at.

You might see, on the right, a small picture of two girls in bikinis.

Interesting image to see next to Sojourner Truth's name isn't it?

Well, you can look for yourself at the page here, and you can watch that video of the ladies here.

My response is Ba-huh? Pasty white chicks need a chance to get a tan. Oh boy, we've come a long way baby.

Or not.
