“Votes for women!”
Was the cry,
Reaching upward to the Sky.
Crashing glass
And flashing eye-
“Votes for Women!”
Was the cry.
“Boats for women!”
Was the Cry.
When the brave
Were come to die.
When the end
Was drawing nigh-
“Boats for women!”
Was the cry.

On this the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic

When Titanic Sank 99 Years Ago This Week,
People Were More Honest About Gender Roles Than They Are Today

From The Spearhead
