The notorious myth of the bra-burning feminist was born when the first feminist protest against the Miss America competition was held in Atlantic City, NJ in 1968.

These little facts and stories, viz. our report on Atlantic City’s impact on the English Language, add to the mystique of that all-purpose, gaming destination, Atlantic City. Will we soon see a national feminist gathering to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the famed bra-burning? I want exclusive media rights if they do.
