Photo Friday (on Sunday): Bad Girls

I was over at It'll Take the Snap Out of Your Garters, and there was a great post about women in the 40s wearing t-shirts and jeans. Jeans, you say? Are you clutching your pearls yet?

It's such a great look though, and I'm glad she posted her photos. And it reminded me of the panic that started in the 40s about girl gangs. Behold, a girl gang being carted away for their participation in the zoot suit riots. I love how even the baddest girls still wore loafers.

What better way to titillate the imagination and rile up the prudes than with wicked pulp fiction and exploitation flicks that draw from real life? 

And let's not forget that The Pink Ladies were a watered-down musical version of what was a real problem.
