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).
