Got A Girl Crush On: These Pizza-Loving “Suffragettes”  We have far too much love for this photo/caption to ruin it  with a little fact-checking. Thank you, brave women, for paving the way for what is (quite literally) every weekend of our lives.    “In 1921, early suffragettes often donned a bathing suit and ate pizza in large groups to annoy men…it was a custom at the time”    (via Cult of Aphrodite Vintaga: rookiemag: fat-grrrl-activism)

Nevertheless, she became a top secret researcher for the director of the OSS, the legendary William "Wild Bill" Donovan. And, later, she worked to reduce the threat of U-boats, the deadly Nazi submarines. Who would have guessed?
