In honor of Women’s History Month, which started on March 8, I bring you the works of Alice Duer Miller, a feminist writer for the New York Tribune, back in 1915.
I’m rather amazed that any newspaper had a feminist writer back in 1915.
The image below is a poster made from one of Duer’s articles in a collection titled “Are Women People?” The Library of Congress has a copy that you can breeze through.
Here’s the poster. When I first saw it, I thought it was a joke – meaning, someone had photoshopped it and claimed it was “really old.” It is in fact really old. It’s just great. 1915. Wow.
And here’s another great one: “Why we oppose pockets for women.” Enjoy.
