Bloomer Girl

This article presents information on the book "Susan B. Anthony," by Katherine Anthony. As this fine biography proves time and time again, it took more than howling men to keep Anthony from fighting to get for women that freedom in dress and politics which men had long since won. It is well to be reminded that, if women can walk down a beach today with not enough of a swimming suit to show up on their shadow, then it was because such people as Anthony defied the jeers of men to wear a short skirt over long bloomers on city streets. One of the virtues of this book is that it gives an adequate account of Anthony's ancestry and family, a remarkable group of people with a will almost as strong as hers and an idealism almost as great.
