A tip for the employers of women!

24 Feb

The ladies of Strumpet Heights would like to direct your attention to an article written for male supervisors of women in the workforce during WWII  – 1943’s Guide to Hiring Women. It contains some amusing observations and tips for keeping women happy and content at work, our favourite being no.8:

“Give every girl an adequate number of rest periods during the day.  You have to make some allowances for feminine psychology.  A girl has more confidence and is more efficient if she can keep her hair tidied, apply fresh lipstick and wash her hands several times a day.”

How true and as the picture proves, wartime workers were the epitome of glamour!

Miss Kitty’s favoured lipstick for day is “Retro” , a pretty geranium red, and for night “Alarm”, a bold true red, both by Rimmel London.  Miss Wanda’s daytime favourite is “Coral Dream” by no. 7, a creamy coral pink, and for evening “Lady Danger” by MAC, a bright orangey red. We are always on the lookout for new lipsticks – let us know which one you favour!
