I thought this 1976 recruitment advertising might be pretty common, but it appears to be just the opposite. It's clever, but in a way seems somewhat against the tide of the Women's Liberation Movement of the 70's. The paper dolls are strung together and folded accordion style. The covers asks "What Kind of Dolls are Choosing Mary Kay Cosmetics as a Career?" Inside (on both sides) it showcases 15 top consultants who collectively earned three-quarters of a million dollars selling make-up. The idea was to show the diversity of the consultants -- club woman, educator, artist, two minister's wives, homemaker, airlines stewardess, stenographer, school teacher, production worker, fashion model, dentist's wife, professional volunteer, arts patron, and military wife. Each woman (all attractive) is named and pictured in black and white with a biography. The last page tells you how to join the crowd. The piece measures 8" tall and 3-1/2" at widest parts. This is an especially good collectible, not only because of the company and its products, but because it shines a light on how much life has changed.
