Martin, Edward A. "H.L. Mencken and Equal Rights for Women." Georgia Review 35 (Spring 1981): 65-76.
Annotation / Notes: Mencken has wrongly been stereotyped as a male chauvinist. He consistently supported female suffrage and respected intelligent, independent women. In his writings he often posed as being anti-feminist in order to attack convention. For Mencken, society should be a group of individuals who thought for themselves, and "women were to be equals to men as individuals in such a society" (76). Interestingly, Mencken was Victorian in his personal life, prefering his women to be genteel and chaste.
