Random Cutting - Strong Women (1926)

Click to Read
Girl power 1920's style. Writen I imagine because in 1926 the only 2 succesful English Channel swims were by women - Gertrude Ederle and Amelia Corson. Prior to that 5 men had done it. By the end of the 1920's the score was 5 women to 11 men. In the whole 20th century there were 890 succesful solo crossings of which 294 were completed by 'the weaker sex'.
