Explores how freeing the female leg became central to women's liberation, beginning with the French Revolution and ending with the sexual revolution. This book contains over 400 photos that document the burlesque 'leg shows' of the 1800s, the silk-stockinged flappers of the 1920s, and the nylon-mania of the 1940s.
