Are Women People?

Alice Duer Miller (1874-1942)

Alice Duer Miller was a writer who had written some verses about suffrage for the New York Tribune.  The verses were published in a book in 1915 called Are Women People? 

In the 1940s, she wrote a novel in verse called The White Cliffs which was a surprising best seller and it was made into a film in 1942 called The White Cliffs of Dover.

Next week I will be featuring a number of her verses, many of which are humorous (we need all the humor we can find these days).  Today I'll start with the Introduction:

Tomorrow is Flower Friday and if you have any photos of yellow, white, or purple flowers that you would like to share with us, please email me at

Stay safe and have a good day!
