:) I had a Ministry of Truth moment looking at a film from 1962 showing a human powered aeroplane built by Southampton University. About 20 seconds in there is footage of a female engineering student adjusting a control surface. Now everybody knows that prior to 1968 when feminism was invented all women were excluded from engineering and all other manly endeavors such as, well, adjusting control surfaces. I call shenanigans. :)
