Its more fun to blame women for something stupid. FWIW The state of Washington where the Rainier Brewery is/was located granted women the right to vote in 1910 against the state liquor lobbies wishes. Like most states that adopted womens suffrage early on the statewide prohibition of alcohol was one of the first measures passed. Nationwide suffrage and prohibition came soon afterward. The Columbia Brewery ( Heidelberg Beer ) at the base of the hill I live on has been closed since 1916. Oregon let women vote in 1912. Prohibition hit in 1916. Coincidence? I don't think so.
