“Joan Baez encouraged draft resistance during her concerts, and is believed to have suggested that women opposed to violence should go for men who were resisting the military draft. This suggestion soon turned into the poster featuring Baez, which was created by Larry Gates and sold to raise funds for the Draft Resistance movement. The poster features the Joan Baez, along with her sisters Pauline and Mimi.”

    Girls indeed said “yes” back in the late ’60s, and none of them ever asked me about my feelings on the war first.

    The same girls would say yes for a 6-pack of beer or a couple of joints too.
