In the late 1980s, when the US was gearing up for the Vietnam War, American women were encouraged to wear bulletproof vests, the same sort of body armor that American soldiers wore during the Vietnam war.
The vests were designed to protect their legs from the splinters and shrapnel of bullets and the fragments of bullets that hit them, so they would be ready when needed.
As they did during the war, American men wore them, too.
The women wore them as a matter of fashion and they became a symbol of female empowerment, even though the body armor didn’t prevent soldiers from being shot and killed.
But in the decades since, there have been some who have argued that the body armour has become an unnecessary distraction from women’s basic human needs.
For example, a few years ago, actress and fashion designer Nina Agdal told an audience in London that women are wearing bulletproof vest because it is part of the way women are perceived in the media and in society.
In an interview with a French TV station, Agdal said, “I wear bullet proof vests because I have been told that women in the public eye, they don’t look sexy.
I’m telling you that I am wearing them because I want to be a beautiful woman.
They are a symbol, a symbol for a certain kind of woman.”
In an article for The Guardian last year, author Rebecca Hernan said that the idea of women wearing bullet proof body armor to protect themselves from gunfire was part of a broader movement of cultural appropriation of women’s bodies and lives, which she calls “the feminist war on women.”
In response to this and other arguments, fashion designers around the world have started to take a different approach to their own creations.
According to a new survey from brand consultancy brandbrand, only 5 percent of women in America said they wore bulletproof body armor, compared to 40 percent of men.
In other words, more than half of American women wear bullet-proof vamps and, when it comes to the majority of the rest of us, a majority of us wear them as part of our everyday lives.
When it comes right down to it, the bulletproof-vamp is a symbol that women of all genders, no matter their skin color, are more than just women.
And if you don’t like that, you can always just wear a bulletproof turtleneck.
