  • Women's sports became very popular at universities in the 1920s. For much of the 1800s, athletic activities for women were considered improper and even harmful. In this photo, two University of Washington students pose with a volleyball. They are wearing typical women's athletic uniforms of the 1920s: a blouse and jumper with bloomers.
