But how we arrive to Calendar of Miss? Take back the history of this type of calendar is a little trace the history of feminine independence since women took to riding bicycles (1800) and wear pants.

Thomas Murphy and Edmond Osborne were the first in the us to design the first calendar with advertisements under the images (1889). The ingenious design was inspired by the fact that the calendars provide a full year of advertising. The first calendar contained the image of George Washington. He didn’t have much success so in 1903 they had the idea to put the image of a beautiful girl naming “Cosette”.

After some early illustrations depicting the woman in fashion (Life magazine, Cosmopolitan, Vogue, Vanity Fair), it was the turn of the roaring 20 ‘s women overtook men in its tasks and defects due to the remoteness of the war men.
