A Book Of Rhymes For Suffrage Times Alice Duer Miller 1874 1942 was an American writer and poet As a novelist she scored her first real success with Come out of the Kitchen in 1916 The story was made into a play and later the film Spring in Park Lane in 1948 She followed it with a series of other short. I don t remember now how I came across this book but I had added it to a Progressive Reading challenge uite awhile back and finally worked my way down the list to it There are other titles of Miller s at Gutenberg but unfortunately the list does not include her 1917 work Women Are People which I think would be good to read as a companion piece to this one But there are a couple of her novels and plays available there so I hope to read them SomedayNaturally this book is dated to an extent since the focus was the women s suffrage movement of the early 1900 s But for a few reasons the book was fascinating reading for meFor one thing many of the poems in this collection were inspired by politicians andtheir opinions We get to see the uotes which led to the poem Here is an example titled Our Idea Of Nothing At All inspired by this uote I am opposed to woman suffrage but I am not opposed to woman Anti suffrage speech of Mr Webb of North Carolina O women have you heard the newsOf charity and graceLook look how joy and gratitudeAre beaming in my faceFor Mr Webb is not opposedTo woman in her placeO Mr Webb how kind you areTo let us live at allTo let us light the kitchen rangeAnd tidy up the hall To tolerate the female sexIn spite of Adam s fallO girls suppose that Mr WebbShould alter his decreeSuppose he were opposed to us Opposed to you and meWhat would be left for us to do Except to cease to beHere is another titled Home And Where It Is written because of this An Indiana judge has recently ruled As to the right of the husband to decide the location of the home that home is where the husband is Home is where the husband isBe it near or be it farOffice theatre Pullman carPoolroom polls or corner bar All good wives remember this Home is where the husband isWoman s place is home I wisLeave your family bacon fryingLeave your wash and dishes dryingLeave your little children crying Join your husband near or farAt the club or corner barFor the court has taught us thisHome is where the husband isYou can feel Miller s indignation throughout the book It is easy to imagine yourself in the middle of the struggle Which has actually only partially succeeded in my opinion and this is the other reason the book was interesting to me It made me wonder once about our modern world Yes women got the vote Yes women were allowed to become doctors lawyers anything they wanted tobe Oh and someone in New York state finally decided that it was entirely possible for a married woman to be a teacher Laws were passed but does that mean that women were finally truly respected as human beings I see the headlines all the time rapes here beatings there female genital mutilation kidnappings arranged marriages that are just an excuse for acuiring a slave the list is endless And depressing I wonder what Alice Duer Miller would say now about the conditions of women around the world
