By the time the 70’s were in full swing the California skate scene was not only making its way across the country, but it was welcoming female skateboarders into the fold. Female skaters happily joined up with the infamous Z-Boys, aerial skateboarding pioneers. Once the ladies started shredding in the streets with the guys, the way women were viewed in sporting circles changed completely.

And while you’d think the novelty of it all would ensure attention, skater chicks got far less coverage in the media than their male counterparts and they weren’t able to secure as much pay or sponsorships either.

Pictured here is John Lennon and his son Julian Lennon. Julian was John’s son with his first wife, Cynthia. After his father ran off with Yoko and had another child, Julian’s relationship with his father quickly diminished.

Now fully grown, Julian speaks freely about his feelings for Lennon:

I have to say that, from my point of view, I felt he was a hypocrite. Dad could talk about peace and love out loud to the world but he could never show it to the people who supposedly meant the most to him: his wife and son. How can you talk about peace and love and have a family in bits and pieces - no communication, adultery, divorce? You can't-do it, not if you're being true and honest with yourself.
