Showgirl's Life Podcast | ep 41 Female leaders in Showbiz who worked in a time of cultural and societal oppression featuring Su Kim Chung

Su Kim Chung, head of the Special Collections at the UNLV library joins us again to chat about the matriarchs in the Showgirl’s life, Madame Bluebell and Fluff LeCoque. We discuss generational differences for women in society regarding money, property and work.

We also discussed some books for the more academic approach to the history of women. More topics around how these two women impacted so many women in their lives include nurturing their community, mentorship and female relationships.
