Halloween costumes have come a long way, baby! I was just telling our own Koa Beck about how #ballin I was as a little kid in my Small Wonder costume.

“I am woman, hear me roar,” sang Helen Reddy in 1972. And boy were we roaring. The decade marked the decline of the Vietnam War, and with it the radical hippie culture that permeated the 1960s.
Tom Wolfe deemed it “the me decade” for a reason, but it may have been called the Ms. marathon instead. The magazine and the passing of Roe v. Wade — both in 1972 — was a turning point for the modern woman. Gloria Steinem, arguably the women’s movement loudest activist, was quoted as saying “A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.” Here’s what dating was like in the 1970s… More
Though I’m sure you imagine us as robots automatically generating content each day, similar to the rest of the Internet, The Gloss is actually made up of people. Multiple people, in fact, like a big ol’ cheerleading pyramid of glossy goodness. Actually, that sounds sticky and gross, so maybe just a bunch of women in their twenties and thirties writing on the Internet, some of whom went to prom. More
