Pinning down the feminism of pin-ups. (faculty lounge).

In observance of Women's History Month, Santa Monica College art historian Maria Elena Buszek will explicate her decidedly feminist perspective on the famous 1940s Vargas girl pin-ups. Her free lecture, "From Varga Girls to Riot Grrrls: The Vargas Girl and World War II in the Pin-Up's Feminist History," will be held March 10 on the college's campus. According to Buszek, the pin-up genre assisted in and reflected wider American trends of Idealizing -- rather than discouraging -- women's economic, workforce and sexual power.
