Blondie and Women’s Lib

Blondie and Dagwood

What had the largest impact on women’s liberation? According to one Vatican newspaper writer: the clothes washing machine. Watch this Whirlpool® commerical from the 50s to see just how liberated we’ve become! The poor ladies can’t appreciate voting, but they certainly love clean laundry at the turn of a dial.

Today’s blog is written in tribute to the pea-brained (male) advertising execs at Whirpool®, all men and women who fought for the rights of  females, and—just for giggles—Blondie and Dagwood.

So where in SL can you become a liberated female from a bygone era? Artilleri, of course—the first store I fell in love with in SL. Antonia Marat’s newest capris and halter tops make me want to run out and grab the nearest detergent and pour it all over my sexually repressed pixel body. … Or I could just call them fabulous—you get the picture. Don’t neglect artilleri’s chunky jewlery. It’s color-change and just the right size for a statement.

Speaking of statements, this new hair from Clawtooth by Clawtooth does all my yelling for me. If I believed in a god, this hair would be tickling its transcendent double chin. Talk about a ‘do! Bubbles knows how to bring us ladies closer to heaven.

Heaven, according to Whirlpool®, was a woman’s freedom to do the family’s chores. I spent my afternoon getting in touch with my feminine side at BLONDE, doing a bit of laundry, grabbing a snack, and washing the dishes. This is what I call liberating! Don’t miss this adorable Spring Cleaning outfit (it’s a cheapie!) at the store. It includes the apron, gloves, and a feather duster. Perfect for the modern woman who doesn’t need a man–only a few appliances that vibrate.

    You know when I called you a domestic goddess before? It totally didn’t do you justice.

    I adore the colours in all of the pics. Brava Ms Felix and her washing machine!

    “Pull up your flaps, you’re dragging!”

    I seriously fell on the floor. What an inconsiderate thing to say about another woman’s hoo hoo.

    Thanks!
