Jessica Longsdorf's Senior Oration

The 1891 July Dickinsonian further comments on Jessica Longsdorff's performance for the Senior Oratorical Contest. Her oration was written on "The Uncrowned," which is about paintings from the French Revolution. The Dickinsonian proclaims that hers was "one of the best orations of the evening."

"Woman's Work and Woman's Wages"

The event of the Junior Oratorical Contest of 1891 was documented in the July issue of the Dickinsonian. Minnie Mack was the first speaker, who chose her subject to be "Woman's Work and Woman's Wages," which stirred much interest in those listening. She spoke on the "great injustice done to women, who...very often performing the same labor as men, yet received much less compensation." Minnie Mack then further comments on the changing times, how now women are more fitted for "mechanical or professional work" than the chief role of adorning a house.

Women's Literary Society Debate

The 1890 November Dickinsonian once again brings forth the question of allowing the women of the college to have a literary society. This issue has become a "yearly issue" and comes up "as regularly as the foot ball discussion." After about three years of debate, people are still of divided opinion on the subject. The Dickinsonian believes though that this is "a case for individual belief" and it would not be fair if it were up to the faculty to decide.
