#SeptemberDanes #lipsticklies If we send our girl to college will she turn out to be a sex kitten in a teddy or a geek in glasses?There was no end to speculation & articles in popular magazines predicting dire consequences of higher education for women from the earliest days till now.I love that this book can capture a serious topic with such humor & insight.Hey maybe she wants an education for a better quality of life and some opportunities?🤔

Leftcoastzen @merelybookish in fact, they cover the point of view that it‘s more of a “finishing school” and snag that man with potential before he leaves campus!🤣😬Also ,There is a photo from a Cornell class on how to maintain and use an iron. 1y
