22 Striking Photos That Prove Girls In The Last Century Were Pretty Badass

Women of the 20th century can be the perfect role models for many modern girls and we have a lot to learn from them. Whether they were riding motorcycles, enjoying sunny days on the beach, or just fooling around with their girlfriends, they never failed to seize the moment and show their reckless side and openness to the world. And this kind of attitude can help you get through hard times and find the silver lining in every situation. Plus, just imagine how badass our grandmothers probably looked during these times!



We got inspired by the strong, and sometimes rebellious, women of the past century and we’re fascinated to show you the beauty and the spirit of the old times through these photos.
