I mean, let’s be honest, Christmas isn’t really about Jesus being born anymore, is it? It’s about a fat, bearded man climbing through your chimney to give you presents if you’ve been nice.

And if you haven’t been nice or don’t own a house with a chimney, you’re pretty much screwed.

3 Barbie

Despite Barbie not being an actual person, she has shaped society’s image of girls and how girls should behave for decades.

Heck, even her impossible figure has set the tone for what a girl’s body should look like.

Rosie the Riveter was the star of a campaign aimed at recruiting female workers for defense industries during World War II, and she became perhaps the most iconic image of working women.

American women entered the workforce in unprecedented numbers during the war, as widespread male enlistment left gaping holes in the industrial labor force.

Between 1940 and 1945, the female percentage of the U.S. workforce increased from 27 percent to nearly 37 percent, and by 1945 nearly one out of every four married women worked outside the home. Info from History.com
