Now She's A Young Suffragette!


"Lest We Forget, the Suffragette" is a satirical piece written for the Microcosm about the Women's Suffrage Movement. The piece begins with all of the women are trying to decide which man they will use as an escort for Prayer Day. After much deliberation and defeat, the women then resolve to go to the Prayer Day event together, leaving the men to go alone. They all then decide to call the girls of 1910 the Suffragettes, and "refuse escorts to all stunts except the senior ride and the Commencement concert." After much deliberation, the girls decide not to tell the men until they bid on them for the Prayer Day event that they will refuse all offers of escorting, calling it "a trip in the dark."
