BOMBSHELL

A collection of illustrations celebrating the beauty, style and success of female performers in the 1930’s.

Women of the circus defied gender stereotypes and social expectations of the 1930’s by performing and

earning alongside the men.

Hollywood screen sirens were business savy women negotiating professional independence and 

challenging the patriarchal business structure of Hollywood.
