“Jayne Mansfield was a member of Mensa — it wasn’t only her boobs that were huge. She had, like, a 163 IQ; she spoke five languages. There are all kinds of interesting women from that decade who were reduced to their breasts and whose comedic talents, as in the case of Monroe and brilliance in the case of Mansfield…. They knew, to use contemporary language, they knew they were performing their gender.”
Professor Melinda Barlow
