    Three ladies smoking pipes. This is a great photo but the women in it cannot be Rosa Luxemburg, Simone de Beauvoir, and Emma Goldman (1930s) as the viral caption claims

      Three pipe smoking ladies on a beach in England - 1930s someone says it's Rosa Luxemburg, Simone De Beauvoir and Emma Goldman but it's hard to believe... especially if the date is right ;)

      Though this image claims to be -Rosa Luxembourg, Simone De Beauvoir and Emma Goldman on the beach, smoking pipes (1930’s.) It can't be. Rosa Luxemborg was murdered by fascists in 1919 when Simone de Beauvoir was only 11. Instead I will leave this here as a wish for what could someday be - women free to defy societal gender norms of the past & have deep meaningful friendships and fun.

      "One's life has value so long as one attributes value to the life of others, by means of love, friendship, and compassion." - Simone De Beauvoir (with Rosa Luxembourg and Emma Goldman on the beach, smoking pipes, 1930’s.)

      Sadly untrue caption: "Rosa Luxembourg, Simone De Beauvoir and Emma Goldman walking on the beach, smoking pipes (1930’s.)" Since RL was born in 1871 and EG in 1869, looks darned unlikely. (SdB was born 1908, much later.) But the spirit of the photo is very fine.
