End Women's Suffrage?

by

Here's a disturbing viral video from UVM TV — last year, reporter Matt Lewis asked female students what they think about the dramatic increase in women's suffrage since 1920. Can you guess what they said?

And yes, we're talking about the right to vote... but of course Lewis didn't explain that to them.

I find this video somewhat meanspirited and sexist — but also funny. A few of the women knew it was a trick question, but the ones who didn't sound soooooo clueless. One actually looked at the camera and said, "I believe women's suffrage is unfortunate and should stop."

Groan.

Thanks, Dan G., for sending us the link.
