Special performance of scenes from a risqué melodrama about prostitutes and Bowery lowlife that were so common at the turn of century the genre was called the brothel play. Then – as now – America worried and obsessed about the modern woman, sex in the city and women’s rights. Kate Carew wrote and drew about these issues in 1910, highlighting the abuse of streetwalkers, some of whom were called ‘white slaves’. Vice as social issue and drama.

Line-Up: Director Barnard Jaffier, Writer; Anna Jhirad; Historian: Kathleen Hulser, a stage actress, a diva, and the marvelous Kate Carew herself.

Kate Carew was a turn of the century caricaturist and journalist who broke boundaries for women in the lurid pages of the yellow tabloids of Hearst, Pulitzer – and even drew a comic strip, Angel Child. Her witty pen delineated such stage royalty as Ethel Barrymore and Sarah Bernhardt. But she was also bold enough to probe the mighty fists of boxer Jack Johnson or the possibilities of flight with the Wright Brothers. The production crew has been filming scenes in an old jail in Mt. Holly, New Jersey based on her article on unfair treatment of streetwalkers. Party-goers will also get a glimpse of fabulous moments from a big shoot at the art deco gem of Washington Heights the United Palace Theatre, where scenes with Kate Carew and Theodore Roosevelt, stage luminaries and silent film vamps were shot. The production which moves into high gear this year, is launching fund-raising with this event.

WHITE SLAVERY

“The workhouse is the ultimate horror of the white slaves while she still has her health. Like all the other conditions of her white slavery, it is man-made. Like the police court and the pen, it is not shared by her driver. The driver is exempt from punishment. The law hunts her in the streets and sends her to the Island for being a white slave, but the man who made and keeps her a white slave, and lives on her, has committed neither a felony nor a misdemeanor.”                                               Kate Carew~

The Flying Suffragists

On December 2nd, 1916, at Midland Beach, Staten Island, New York, a group of suffragists attempted a wild publicity stunt, which involved a biplane, and then President, Woodrow Wilson. The idea was to ‘bomb’ President Woodrow Wilson on his yacht, the Mayflower, as it made its way down the Hudson River en route to the illumination of the Statue of Liberty. This “bomb” consisted of yellow petitions from “woman voters of the West” and leaflets in support of the Susan B. Anthony suffrage amendment. Written by Anthony, with the assistance of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, this amendment called for the extension of the right to vote to women. First presented to Congress in 1878, by 1916 it had been rejected by the Senate twice, and had recently been defeated in the House of Representatives in January 1915. Not until 1920 would woman suffragists be victorious with the passage of the 19th Amendment.

 

The suffragist pilot,  was Leda Richberg-Hornsby, Leda was one of the pioneer female aviators of the 1910s. She attempted several times to join the US flying corps as a combat pilot in France during the First World War. Her service was refused.
