Through the Female Lens

These photos are a reflection of a time when women longed for power and a proper place in the social hierarchy. Relegated to kitchen duties and housekeeping, women thirsted for more. One of the photos features the girl behind a fence. Always behind  the fence, women were forced to stand back, to watch but never join. One image shows the girl desperately looking outside a window, wanting to join the men’s world outside. Thankfully, much has changed in the U.S.; now, women are right there doing things they should have been able to do all along. But this issue remains prevalent in many, many other countries.
