Josephine Baker in Really Boring Underwear

Josephine Baker
1906 – 1975

Ahhhh, Josephine! She is probably my favorite subject in 33 Amazing Women. You can’t go wrong with a magnificent diva. She was Cher before Cher was Cher. (Wow! Three Cher mentions in one sentence. I am on fire!)

The one item that is not true to her costumes is the underwear that you’ll need to click to see. I am fairly certain that she did not ever wear anything so boring. But, you know, this book is for grown-ups of ALL ages. Get your mind out of the gutter.

Read more about Josephine and her underwear.

Charismatic and Controversial: Margaret Mead

“If she had pointed to me and said, ‘You! You’re the one I choose! Come off with me!’ I would have gone with her. Anywhere.”

— A man, 30 years Mead’s junior recalling meeting her at a dinner party.”
Margaret MeadCultural anthropologist Margaret Mead was a mesmerizing speaker, a mentor and role model to many an adventurer. She listened to people’s secrets and shared them with us thereby opening Somoa, New Guinea and other hidden cultures to the world.
Learn LOTS more about Margaret.
