The theme song to the 1970’s sitcom Maude, starring Bea Arthur, begins as follows:
Lady Godiva was a freedom rider, she didn’t care if the whole world looked
Joan of Arc, with the Lord to guide her, she was a sister that really cooked
Isadora was the first bra burner, ain’t you glad she showed up?
And when the country was falling apart, Betsy Ross got it all sewed up
And then there’s Maude…
Now, I know who Lady Godiva (famous for riding a horse naked), Joan of Arc (famous for being a young woman who fought for her country), Betsy Ross (famous for supposedly making the firest United States flag), and Maude (famous for being Bea Arthur in real life) are, but who is the Isadora mentioned in the song? I imagine, based on the way she is described in the song, she could be comparable to the women’s libbers of the 1960s and 1970s.
