Kids at Party, Circa 1975

Party 1970s

The young lady’s pose pretty much sums up my perception of girls when I was a boy: effortlessly precocious, defiant, untouchable. Feminism seemed to be something they demanded by virtue of being alive, by candidly commanding a room or a conversation or the task at hand. It was an emanation, not a hollow phrase parroted about on Twitter.

The “shesmidas” on the cup is a watermark referring to the eBay store where I found the shot.

See another great found photo of the period here.
