Marlene Dietrich


100 Women Street Gallery (international women)

While her efforts didn't directly fight for women's rights, Marlene made a contribution to feminism through fashion. She wore trousers and men's suits at a time when it was extraordinarily taboo. She was arrested wearing pants in public in the 1930s, and was famously quoted as saying, "I dress for the image. Not for myself, not for the public, not for fashion, not for men." Marlene’s fashion influenced the modern tradition of women to wear suits for confidence and power.
