Ladies Have A Smoker

Smoker – (n.) An informal social gathering for men only

Sick of letting the boys have all the fun, the Young Women’s Republican Club of Milford, Connecticut decided to have a “smoker” of their own.  On the evening of May 20th, 1941, the girls drank, smoked pipes, wrestled, and had their very own strip-tease.  Life Magazine’s Nina Leen documented the debauchery.
