Event Description:

Woman suffrage is the reform against nature,” declares Marie Jenney Howe’s unlikely, but irresistibly likeable, heroine. Howe, a pro-suffragist, wrote her Anti-Suffrage Monologue in 1912—eight years before women at last won the vote. Her fictional speaker is a charming, guileless enthusiast who sincerely believes that her efforts as a “womanly woman” will keep the Home intact—and save the Nation from anarchy. “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." Performed by Michele LaRue, who has been touring the country for over 25 years with various one-person shows, is giving a lecture followed by a Q&A, directly after the performance.
