Hot on the heels of the critically acclaimed Voluptuous Panic, HOT GIRLS OF WEIMAR BERLIN reveals that the feminist archetype was not an invention of 1960s America. In World War I many German men lost their lives, and afterwards women's roles expanded, creating aggressive, powerful, sexual beings. Like Marlene Dietrich, Weimar women could wear suits and also retain their attractiveness and femininity. Weimar Berlin was the primary city of European sex culture, and its permissive sensibility allowed women to transgress the usual ideal. These women were allowed to exercise their sexual prerogatives right up until the Third Reich insisted that they return to the role of child-bearer.
