A Suffragette Recipe

Anti's Favorite Hash

(Unless you wear dark glasses you cannot make a success of Anti's Favorite Hash.)

1 lb. truth thoroughly mangled
1 generous handful of injustice.
(Sprinkle over everything in the pan)
1 tumbler acetic acid (well shaken)

A little vitriol will add a delightful tang and a string of nonsense should be dropped in at the last as if by accident.

Stir all together with a sharp knife because some of the tid bits will be tough propositions.

(From The Suffrage Cookbook, 1915)

That is great! What a terrific cookbook, where did you find it?

Are all the recipes like that, or are there regular ones too?

Shay said...

Lidian, it's on project Gutenberg, one of my favorite sites!

Mmmm... vitriol.

I would like to share a women's history learning opportunity.

Thanks to the suffragettes, women have voices and choices.

But most people are totally in the dark about HOW the suffragettes won.

Now readers can discover the shocking truth of how the suffragettes did it, and it's as easy as opening their e-mail.

"The Privilege of Voting" is a new e-mail series that follows eight great women from 1912 - 1920 to reveal ALL that happened to set the stage for women to win the vote.

Two beautiful and extremely powerful suffragettes -- Alice Paul and Emmeline Pankhurst are featured, along with Edith Wharton, Isadora Duncan, Alice Roosevelt and two gorgeous presidential mistresses.

There are tons of heartache for our heroines on the rocky road to the ballot box - but in the end - they WIN!

Presented in a unique sequential e-mail series -- each inspiring episode is about 10 minutes -- perfect to enjoy during coffeebreaks, or anytime.
