Boys in Skirts-the CIA Rebellion of 1941

01/22/14  |  Posted by Library Staff  |  Posted in Library

In 1941, when the girls at CIA began to wear pants to school, the male students became upset, and staged a rebellion of sorts. They decided to wear skirts. According to the article, this action did not dissuade the girls at all. They stated that pants were more practical in the studio. One female student challenged a male in a skirt to learn to knit! What do today’s students think about such stereotypes? Do you see anything today that could compare to the Skirt Rebellion from 1941?
