What the contents of this Depression-era purse says about American women in 2017

How much have women changed in 80 years? A lot. And in some ways not much at all.

The recent discovery in a Chicago theater of a 1930s clutch purse is a time-capsule glimpse into a night out for a Depression-era young woman. The little red bag’s contents, as reported by DNAInfo.com, were limited to a rosary, a pen, two tubes of lipstick, a still nearly full bottle of liquid foundation, Anacin (modern-day Advil) and a Kelvyn Park pin (which refers to a public park and high school in Chicago’s Hermosa neighborhood).

No smartphone, of course. Instead, a well-used address and phone number book.
