Real Women - Beauty Through The Decades The Realistic Way

"To be frank, it was supposed to be just another "Beauty Through The Decades" video. I saw lots of them already, but they all have seemed to show beauty standards in a very stereotypical and pop-culture way, so I wanted to do a more historically accurate one. As I was doing some research, I became more and more aware that beautiful faces and fashion we see on the photos, ads and fashion plates are just an idealistic version of reality. So here's to reality. NOTES: It was hard for me to make this video universal and find some papers referring to the whole Europe or even the whole world, so the numbers I used may be a little misleading. To make it clear: - 40% of women in factories (1901) refers to Great Britain only - one out of nine women working in domestic service refers to Russia. If you know any other specific numbers referring to a wider cultural context I'd be more than greatfull. (Oct. 2015)" from video introduction
