Rosa Bonheur

Rosa Bonheur, the famous 19th century realist painter, wore men’s clothing, including pants, when she worked because she specialized in painting animals and found it more convenient, much to the horror of those who saw her dressed that way. “I was forced to recognize that the clothing of my sex was a constant bother,” she was quoted as saying, “But the suit I wear is my work attire, and nothing else. The epithets of imbeciles have never bothered me.” In-your-face women tend to be busy -- very, very busy -- and far too busy to care what somebody else thinks.
