Matriarch Monday {Mae West}

Mae West
"A dame that knows the ropes isn't likely to get tied up"

Mae West, Brooklyn, New York bombshell may have helped pave the way for woman and their public sexuality.

In early days stair banisters had to be covered with drapes of fabric so men couldn't see a lady's ankle as she walked up or down. With these strictly enforced rules it's no wonder she was arrested yet beloved when she began writing, producing and directing in such films.

We may have her to thank for today's ever plunging neckline or depending on how you look at it, wag our finger...
