Thread Name: the Little Red Songbook--I.W.W.
Subject: RE: the LITTLE RED SONGBOOK--I.W.W.
I'm just as afflicted with wanderlust as described above; hitched around eurpoe one summer during my students days, got in my car and went wherever and whenever; you have to remember it wasn't safe for female persons then (or now) to be out and about, alone. A (female) relative of a friend had a travelling job inthe fifties, and talks about wearing a man's hat she kept pulled down while on the highway. No, it shouldn't be like that, but butting your head against the realities can get you dead. I knew someone this happened to, too.

off the soapbox now, Mary Ann
