About this experience

This one woman play is presented by Ventfort Hall in partnership with the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum.

Portrayed by professional actress Michèle LaRue, "Someone Must Wash the Dishes” was written in 1912, by Marie Jenney Howe, a prominent pro-Suffragist and Unitarian minister. Howe satirizes arguments seen as accurate in their day, though absurd in ours.  This fictional “Anti” sincerely believes being a “womanly woman” will keep the home intact and save the nation from anarchy.
