Sepia Saturday

Sepia Saturday 563 Theme Prompt (27 March 2021)

It’s Saturday again and time for Sepia Saturday when bloggers are challenged based on an image. This week’s inspired me to find photos of groups of women.

These women advocated for the repeal of prohibition.

Biblical group: Pen Women’s League. United States Washington D.C. District of Columbia Washington D.C, 1920. Photograph. https://www.loc.gov/item/2016827813/.

This is one (of many I’ve posted) for which I wish I knew the full story.

    Love the pairing of anti-prohibitionists and religious groups.

    Great set of images. Loved twenties costumes – always fancied myself as a flapper.

    Very interesting choices. Of course prohibition was largely the result of efforts by women’s political action groups, so that first photo must be ladies who had second-thoughts about it. Your second photo is from the American Colony in Jerusalem, which was a utopian Christian community started in 1881 by a Presbyterian couple from Chicago. The Wikipedia entry for the colony reads like an adventure novel.
    Your last choice is odd, but the Pen Women’s League is a progressive women’s group that stared in 1897 as an advocate for fair treatment for professional women writers. I wonder if they were dressed for a society event like a stage play..
