Andy Murray, Ashton Kutcher, now John Legend, Judge Jack Weinstein, and Gov. Andrew Cuomo: Can a 21st Century Men’s League Be Far Behind?

August 25, 2017

Given the recent pro-women’s equality declarations of Andy Murray (reminding reporters of the greatness of women tennis players Serena and Venus Williams), Ashton Kutcher (calling for equality for women in tech), John Legend (on feminism for men beyond their role as fathers of daughters), Brooklyn Senior Judge Jack B. Weinstein  (for a greater role for women lawyers), and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (challenging the sitting president to recognize Women’s Equality Day),  can a 21st century version of the Men’s League be far behind?
I can tell them where to look for some good ideas from their forebears.
From 1912, the opening pages of the membership booklet of the New York Men’s League for Woman Suffrage, including the names of many celebrities of their day:
