Careers for Women in Uniform
Heiman and Myers
Everyone knows I have a particular issue with career books. This one is particularly interesting as it is all about recruiting women into the the armed forces. Considering the year this was published, I wonder how many women they actually were able to recruit, given anti-war sentiment at the time. I have to laugh at the author’s attempt to make the military appealing to women by constantly talking about how great the uniforms look. Every other page seemed to say “come join the army and wear a cute uniform.” Even in 1971, this is a pretty ridiculous strategy for attracting women.
Evidently, this book is all about selling the military to women using clothes, parties, and fun. I keep thinking they are leaving out a few things.
Debbie Drake’s Easy Way to a Perfect Figure and Glowing Health
Debbie Drake was featured on our site back in 2011 with this exact book. The book’s condition was pretty sad and my scans weren’t very good. It was also missing a cover and when I found one with the cover intact, I thought it was time for a “do-over.” Debbie was a female version of Jack LaLanne .
The original post had some advice on how to exercise your hair and face. This time I included pictures from Debbie’s advice on how to get up from bed, increase your bust, and spot reduce your waist. You’re welcome.
Discovering a Lovelier You
If you remember, we have featured a few of these books (because one book just wouldn’t be enough to fix what is wrong with women). Remember how to figure out your man? Or how about finding fulfillment as a woman through crafts?
Today’s selection is about making yourself as pretty as possible. Those crazy women libbers want you to be ugly. There is a bunch of self-esteem messages along with all the beauty tips. Throughout the book, the author advises that those women libber types don’t know what they are talking about. Every woman wants to look her best!
Who doesn’t want to sit in front of the mirror doing facial exercises to achieve feminine fulfillment?
