Once upon a time man was the dominate force in choosing a mate. As most women know that was a long while back. Today it's not unusual for a woman to call the shots, but in the middle of the 1970s as shown by this Helmut Newton photograph, women were just coming into their own. In all aspects of her life she was becoming the emancipated woman and making her own decisions. Common today but radical for its time, and nothing better exemplifies all that entails better then this photo. She is woman hear her roar, will she choose him? Perhaps not, but either way she is comfortable in her skin and it shows. It will be her choice and we call that being a modern woman.
