A Feminist Kid 60 Years Ago

And where else but in comic books? Frank Johnson's "Little Tomboy" of the 1950's was a little "He-Girl" -- hanging out with boys and acting like one, even fist-fighting with them -- long before such things became generally acceptable in society. Here's one little 5-page story that would be no big deal if it weren't 60 years old!

And BTW, there was a real (i.e. not fictional) feminist kid in the 1930's, who hung out with boys and acted like one -- fighting and playing rough -- and later became an advocate for women's rights. Guess who?

Oh well, it's not a thing that anybody could guess. But many people are surprised to find out that the great tomboy of the 1930's was Shirley Temple. That was one helluva kid. She had a genius-level IQ, and was a tomboy, a movie star, a women's rights crusader, and an ambassador. That's a lot of accomplishments for one lifetime! Not many women -- or men either -- have done that much.
