Description

If you like CLOTHES and people with the courage to SKIRT conventions and adDRESS injustice then Amelia Bloomer and her unFITTING ideas will charm the PANTS off you!

This rebellious reFORMer and early women's rights activist invented bloomers — baggy pantaloons worn with a short skirt over them — which liberated women from the dangerous and opPRESSive clothing of the mid- nineteenth century. No longer would women PURSE their lips in pain from tight, steel corsets. No more would they BOW under the weight of forty-pound outfits. When Amelia Bloomer BELTed out her fashion grievances, the world HEELed!

Buoyant, witty text conveys a serious subject in a manner that never takes itself too seriously. Beautiful, high-styled illustrations with a brilliant palette make a fashionable splash.
