Someone Must Wash The Dishes: An Anti-Suffrage Satire @ Cranford Community Center
Apr 21 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Someone Must Wash The Dishes: An Anti-Suffrage Satire @ Cranford Community Center

The Cranford Historical Society presents: “Someone Must Wash The Dishes: An Anti-Suffrage Satire”

Celebrate the Centennial of Woman Suffrage with this hilarious parody of the arguments against females voting. They sound crazy now, but for 72 years, those arguments denied women the ballot and equal rights.

Someone Must Wash the Dishes: An Anti-Suffrage Satire pairs pro-Suffragist Marie Jenney Howe’s 1913 “An Anti-Suffrage Monologue” with a lively lecture explaining why women’s voting would lead to anarchy, financial ruin, and “make every home a hell on earth.”

Written by Marie Jenney Howe, performed by professional actress Michèle LaRue and directed by Warren Kliewer, Someone Must Wash the Dishes has toured coast-to-coast, garnering reviews ranging from, “Better than the best stand-ups!” to, “I would have learned a lot more in school if she had been our teacher!”

This program is Free and all are welcome.
