Sexism, 1938, Disney-style

Man. Via Boingboing, I see this letter a guy posted on Flickr that his grandma got from Disney. She applied to their animation school in 1938 but was rejected…because they didn’t hire women for creative work. Gotta save the good work for the menfolk, doncha know.

Enlarged and readable version here.

No wonder Snow White was such a simp.
