The 1950's pinup, glamorous, sassy, not-so-innocent. She broke through accepted cultural norms of femininity while at the same time not only exposing her own sensuality, but doing so as the author and agent of her own body, her own beauty and her own sexuality. She is a cultural icon of both domesticity and anti-domesticity, and she represents the feminine struggle for identity and power in a male-dominated society. Long live the pinup. May she never lose her appeal, her spirit and her ability to empower women to shed off the expectations of others without losing herself in the process.
