Thread Name: womens role in folk clubs
Subject: RE: womens role in folk clubs
It's easy to forget how very fast some of the social changes happened in England in the 60's. In the club I'm discussing, the role of women expanded hugely just in the period 1962 to 1965. I'm also talking about a university town (Oxford) 50 miles from London. Those changes would have lagged by a few years in Keighley. Though I suspect the shortening of skirt-lengths in that period happened about contemporaneously. What would have bben the year when suspender belts finally gave up to the rise of the mini-skirt in Keighley? I guess about 1964 in Oxford.
