GOP Women Party Hard, 1941

“On the evening of May 20,” begins an article in the June 16, 1941, issue of LIFE magazine, “members of the Young Women’s Republican Club of Milford, Conn., explored the pleasures of tobacco, poker, the strip tease and such other masculine enjoyments as had frequently cost them the evening companionship of husbands, sons and brothers.”

Nina Leen chronicled the shenanigans that erupted when a group of GOP women got together for an old-fashioned “smoker.”
