You Know Who Kicked A$$?
Police Woman Sally O’Neil.
“Sally O’Neil, Police Woman” was a regular feature in National Comics. Daughter and sister of cops, she became a cop herself. Unlike other stories of lady cops of the day, Sally’s family encouraged her and she was rarely (in my reading, anyway) presented as a mere sex object of damsel in distress. Indeed, she was often shown as more capable than most of the men around her.
For your reading pleasure:
This was 1946 folks.
I salute the creators of this comic feature.
*Sorry folks, they can’t all be funny ones.
