Bad Romance: Women’s Suffrage Goes Gaga

1 May

I know the Lady Gaga video parodies are legion, but Soomo Publishing’s “Bad Romance: Women’s Suffrage” really knocks out all comers.  I don’t care if Lady Gaga is no longer relevant by the time I’m teaching history courses of my own, but I can promise you one thing: I will be showing this in class.  As an historically-accurate music video (can we have more of those please?), it stands on its own.

Not going to lie — I cried a little at the end.


Damn, is Alice Paul a badass or what?

    It’s quite amusing.

    I too love the video…just want to note that the letter in Harry Burn’s pocket mentions Carrie Chapman Catt, not Alice Paul.
