Add to Calendar 03-03-2013 03-03-2013 15 Performance: Someone Must Wash the Dishes - An Anti-Suffrage Satire Many women fought against getting the vote in the early 1900s, but none with more charm, prettier clothes--and less logic--than the fictional speaker in this satiric monologue written in 1912, by pro-suffragist Marie Jenney Howe. "Woman suffrage is the reform against nature," declares Howe's unlikely, but irresistibly likeable, heroine. "Ladies, get what you want. Pound pillows. Make a scene. Make home a hell on earth--but do it in a womanly way! That is so much more dignified and refined than walking up to a ballot box and dropping in a piece of paper!" Contradicting as many points as she makes--yet never noticing--this well-intentioned speaker sincerely believes that her efforts as a "womanly woman" will keep the Home intact, and save the Nation from anarchy. Performance & Discussion by Michèle LaRue. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=130174 Fairfield Museum and History Center true DD/MM/YYYY
