1921 – Janesville Women Abhor Salacious Entertainment

On this date the Janesville Federation of Women decided to "censor" movies and vaudeville in the city. Members of this organization praised and promoted what they considered "better offerings." They were zealously critical towards those of a "salacious" nature. No follow-up ever determined whether the women were successful in their quest or if the increased publicity for "salacious" shows backfired. [Source: ]
