Would you DARE to bare your underwear? If you like CLOTHES and people with the courage to SKIRT conventions and address injustice then Amelia Bloomer and her un FITTING ideas will charm the PANTS off you! Amelia Bloomer, a rebellious reformer and early women's rights activist, invented bloomers (baggy pantaloons worn with a short skirt over them), thus liberating women from the dangerous and oppressive clothing of the mid-nineteenth century. Here is her story, told in buoyant, witty text and beautiful, high styled-illustrations.
