  1. Very creative! I was relatively aware of the evolution of women in American society, but it was nice being able to visually compare and contrast

  2. Very well drawn! It really does point out the differences in women between time periods, differences I had not noticed or not even really though about until now.

  3. I love this because I think that one of the best ways to sense a country’s feelings is to look at its fine arts. It’s clear what was going on during the time periods in which the outfits were worn.
