When Pink Became a “Girl” Color

Post to Twitter

Jo B. Paoletti (American Studies, Maryland) tells the history in Pink and Blue: Telling the Boys from the Girls in America, published last month by Indiana University Press.  The book’s webpage has a slide show of greeting cards from 1960, when pink and blue were less gender-specific, Dr. Paoletti suggests.
