The Conant Public Library is pleased to present Someone Must Wash the Dishes: An Anti-Suffrage Satire on Monday, November 8 at 7:00 pm at the First Church, 6 Meetinghouse Hill Road in Sterling. Celebrate Women’s Suffrage with this hilarious parody of the arguments against females voting. 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.” Performed by professional actress Michele LaRue and directed by Warren Kliewer, Someone Must Wash the Dishes has toured coast-to-coast, garnering reviews ranging from “side-splitting,” “a rare treat,” and “wicked” in its wit. No registration is required for this event. Call the library at (978)422-6409 for more information. Performance sponsored by the Friends of the Conant Public Library.
