Storyline

In those days when women are prone to take on the causes of modern society with militant energy, it is not at all surprising to learn that in many cases they leave neglected households as monuments of their good purposes. Mrs. Smith evidently considers the cares of a household a burden, for she spends most of her time at the Suffragette's Club. It may be all right for a woman to do this when she is neglecting nothing more than a mere husband, but when two fine little children are included in the case it alters the aspect of things. Mr. Smith himself is a patient suffering mortal, and for a while voices no very strenuous objections to his wife's political activities.

24 June 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Whether or not all disturbances incident to club life, or the cultivation of some particularly engaging ism could be quelled as easily and as quickly as this one is a question which it might be unwise to attempt to solve in the same way. But unquestionably the way to a woman's heart is through her affections, and in this instance when she sees another installed in her place she realizes that after all her home is the important thing, and tells her husband so. It is needless to point out how ready he is to restore her to her rightful place in the home. Intended for a comedy this film is really a subtle study of life and the influences which may be invoked to change the apparently uncontrollable currents. - The Moving Picture World, June 25, 1910
