Heidi Mount stars in an exquisite, sepia-infused retro editorial, lensed by Guy Aroch for Muse Magazine’s issue #31. Yes, there were emancipated, professional women in the forties and fifties, but they were rare in America. It is this fear of the emancipated woman who lives life on her own terms that is at the core of the Republican War on Women.
Heidi is styled in her sensual best by Joanne Blades in ‘You Are Breaking My Heart’, a story of the independent woman who lives a beautiful, fleeting moment enjoyed by most American women at one time or another in our lives.
Trust me, the majority of social conservative women have experienced such a poignant moment in one version or another in their lives. It may well be the unconsummated encounter but they have lived it in their minds if not for real. It’s Heidi’s willingness to walk away when the moment ends that is difficult for America’s increasingly complex, values-loaded society to justify without judging.
In this respect, Heidi Mount officially predates the advent of America’s Rush Limbaugh-condemned slut girls, aka the feminazis. Personally, I’ll take feministas!~ Anne
