Four area Leagues of Women Voters and the Fairfield Museum and History Center will present "Someone Must Wash the Dishes: An Anti-Suffrage Satire" at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 3, at the museum, 370 Beach Road. A reception with refreshments and a question-and-answer session will follow the 45-minute performance.

The fictional character, created in 1920 by pro-suffrage Marie Jenney Howe, is a charming, guileless enthusiast who believes her efforts as a "womanly woman" will keep the home intact and rescue the nation from anarchy.

The play, starring actress Michele Larue as the quintessential early-20th-century anti-suffragist, will be shown in celebration of Women's History Month, according to a news release.
