Burn Your Bra -1


The Miss America protest was a demonstration held at the Miss America 1969 contest on September 7, 1968, attended by about 200 feminists and separately, by civil rights advocates. The feminist protest, organized by New York Radical Women, included tossing symbolic feminine products, including bras, hairspray, makeup, girdles, corsets, false eyelashes, mops, and other items into a “Freedom Trash Can” on the Atlantic City boardwalk.
