Someone Must Wash the Dishes!

You are invited to a light luncheon and performance:

Saturday, March 4, 2018

Doors open: @ 12:30 PM

Many women fought against getting the vote, but none with more charm, prettier clothes—and less logic—than the fictional speaker in Someone Must Wash the Dishes: An Anti-Suffrage Satire.

Cheerfully single-minded, our guest speaker contradicts every point she makes as she crusades to preserve the Home and save the Nation from anarchy!

Marie Jenney Howe’s satiric “An Anti-Suffrage Monologue” was published in 1913, by the National American Woman Suffrage Association (precursor of the League of Women Voters).

No charge. RSVP online, in-person, or by calling: (860) 584-7787 x 2023.

Made possible by a Memorial/Honor Wall Grant from the Friends of theBristol Public Library.
