In the 1960's the phrase "Bra Burning" was well known. We have artistically brought idea to life with this fashion earrings in a modern and metaphorical way while combining the literal elements of this movement.
Women burned their bras because they felt that it proved a statement or made a stand for Women's Rights. Another reason they "burned their bras" was because it was a symbol that showed independence of men at the time. The women that didn't burn their bras often walked around wearing no bra at all. This was also meant to show independence of men. Many women thought that it meant freedom to be natural instead of pushed up.
