Mini Skirt Monday #208: Minis Among Men


Once upon a time, the math club and engineering department were men only.  Once upon a time, the board rooms and offices of administration were gentlemen's clubs, save for a secretary or two.  It wasn't until the early seventies that women started infiltrating the Aqua-Velva and Scotch drenched halls.  This was also the Golden Age of the Miniskirt.  Thus, you have a rich supply of photographs of a room full of males, and one solitary gal in a miniskirt.

Of course, that gal wasn't always a champion of her gender, but rather just a pretty face at a groundbreaking ceremony, or the low-wage office assistance taking dictation for a room full of balding, chain-smoking, gin swilling business execs.  Whatever the circumstance, this edition of Miniskirt Monday is an ode to that single solitary female who, in a room full of men, wore that mini with pride (and, undoubtedly, to the delight of every male in view).


1- The AV club has been infiltrated.  Suddenly, members are wearing their best plaid slacks and worrying about personal hygiene.

7 - Not exactly sure what's up with the bananas.  I'm sure our mini-girl is feeling a tad uncomfortable.

8- Note that some of these photos are from previous MM posts.  Sorry for the repost, but I feel they deserve another look.

  4. I love those instances where you can see decades-worth of photos of a particular group in one place because, depending on what type of group it is, you get to see a microcosm of changes in society as time passes. For example, at a technical school, in the 1960s, you generally see mostly a bunch of white dudes, then more African-American men start to appear, and then more women start to appear.

    On top of that, you can see clothing styles and hairstyles evolve as well.

  5. No need to ever apologize for reposting a particular photo. What ever gets the point across you know. In fact, #10 has always been one of my favorites. I call it Snow White and the Seven Geeks.

  6. In #7, the girl looks a heck of a lot more at ease (barefoot and fancy free), compared to the guy on the far right.

    2. British actress Valerie Leon.

      With Harry H Corbett (or Bernard Bresslaw) , Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey and...?

      So a promo shot for a Carry On film, most likely.
