What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 71 in a series – “…some husbands resented their wives’ Klan activities and absences from home…”

November 4th, 2019

“Klanswomen were often wives of Klansmen, but many joined on their own, and others led their husbands into the organization. In fact, some husbands resented their wives’ Klan activities and absences from home, and some opponents taunted Klansmen with the charge that they were not man enough to keep their wives at home.4 It seems likely, though, that Klanswomen often spent more hours on Klan work than did rank-and-file Klansmen because they had more disposable time.”
