11.6 The Clothes Make the Girl

Her Half of History

Why pink?

And when did girls start dressing in pink, for that matter? (Hint: a lot more recently than you probably imagine.)

This episode also covers whether you actually need baby clothes (probably not, historically speaking) and how long a girls skirts should be, and we also touch on why the boys don’t get lace, ruffles, and pink.
