Self Defense for Girls

Girls that kick butt

Self-Defense For Girls: A Secondary School and College Manual
Tegner & McGrath
1967

Submitter: Maybe not the most awful book, but the pictures are horribly outdated and I would feel embarrassed pulling it for a patron.  Unless of course that patron was planning to have a rumble with the Jets and the Sharks.  The author also offers this rather bitter sounding advice concerning the illusion of women kicking butt on tv shows: “Sad to say, the fights bear as little relationship to actual life as do the love scenes.  Look not to the screen for guidance, girls.”
