Caucasian women performing in stage play set in mid-late 1800s. The following quotes spoken by spoken by unidentified actors.
sort of jobs, many of which could be better filled by us. Aye for all that. I ve put bread in the mouth of five young uns. lazy, loafing, good for nothing men behind the counter all day measuring out lace and slip. I ask you now, do you think it's decent for men to be selling women's corsets and underwear? But there they are, fat lazy things, and having the time of their lives doing it too. And it s all right for the men to do the house building and horse breaking and butchering and whaling, nature intended them for those jobs. But there ain t no sense in them thinking they ve been divinely appointed to be the clerks in the stores and secretaries and telegraph officers and so on. I'm sick and tired of being cut out of all the good paying jobs! And that ain t the worst of it either. I m asking you to put these grievances into your list. I don t expect to get much help from you for we workers must get together and help ourselves if we ever expect to get better conditions. God helps them that helps themselves."
