In 2015 most people are at last starting to cotton on to the fact that women should not be valued for her appearance.

Verna Cox is described as a "pretty little girl" and Rebecca Nelson is said to have a "nice figure".

On the other end of the spectrum Katherine Chavis is called "chubby" and Catherine Cobb is referred to as "plump".

Audrey Roach is passively slut shamed: "Pretty as a picture with a warn Southern accent. Lots of boyfriends."

While Ruby James should be glad she made it to graduation. After all, she's just a dumb blonde: "A pretty blonde with her head in the clouds."

Thank goodness times have changed. (Sort of.)
