    Background: Three beautiful girls in swim-suits paraded at the Pulitzer fountain in New York's Fifth Avenue on Friday (12 June), bearing anti-Women's Liberation Movement placards.

    One of them wore a bathing suit of the 1900's - bonnet, bloomers and stockings. One wore a tiny bikini, and the third a futuristic conception of what the well-dressed young lady will wear on the beach in the middle of the 21st century.

    The startled male New Yorkers were interested in all three.

    A central article of faith in the Women's Liberation movement is that a girl should not allow herself to be a mere sexual objects for the titillation of men.

    The New York Girls were apparently rejecting this tenet, by stripping down in the street.

    A certain amount of publicity was involved, however, since the girl in the smallest swimsuit was Miss Steel Pier 1970. She was advertising the Steel Pier in Atlantic City.
