Feminist Trivia Team Names

Yesterday I went to a really fun women's history trivia night at our local library in honor the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment getting through Congress (it of course wasn't ratified by the required three-fourths of the states until August 1920—thanks, Tennessee!). It was a lot of fun, and so was coming up with potential feminist-themed team names.

We ended up going with the team name "Well Behaved Women Seldom Win Trivia" (and judging by our performance, we are extremely polite), but I figured I'd share all the options I came up with because when I googled around on this subject there was a glaring lack of options out there around the internet. So without further ado, here's my list:
  • Elizabeth Cady Stanton-on-the-Shoulders-of-Giants
  • Alice Paul Y'all
  • Well Behaved Women Seldom Win Trivia
  • Lucy Burns Bras
  • Jane Eyre-ing on the Side of Awesome
  • Rosie the Quiz-eter
  • Lily Ledbetter-watch-out
  • Madeleine Albright Albright Albright
  • Anna Howard Shaw Shucks, You Didn't Have to Let Us Win So Easily!
  • Pearl S. Buck-you-up
  • Ada Lovelace, We'd'a Won More (If We Tried)
  • The Feminine Mystique-ing Out the Victory
  • The Radical Notions [from that saying that feminism is the radical notion that women are people too]
  • Catcalling is for Felines
  • Suffrage is not Enough-rage
  • Seneca Falls Pretenses
  • Seneca Falls Modesty
  • Lulling You into a Seneca Falls Sense of Complacency
  • The Pill at Ease
  • Women of the Pill Repute
  • Took a DNA Test, Turns Out We're 100% Impeach
  • Equal Pay for Equal Cirque du Soleil
  • Seneca Falls Well That Ends Well
  • Les Miz Magazine
  • The Late Bloomers
  • The Geraldine Ferraro Rochers
  • Nancy Pel-oh-say-can-you-see
  • The Suffragette-powered Engines
  • The Silent Sentin-elevens
  • The Crazy Carrie Chapman Catt Ladies
  • The Second Sex—But the First-place Team
  • Men's Rights is Nothing [not punny just a classic Parks and Rec quote]
  • Benny and the Suffragettes

In my defense, I was definitely going for quantity over quality.

I didn't catch all the other teams' names, but two that I liked were Billie Jean's Queens and Hersterectomy 😂

Feel free to leave any others you can come up with in the comments!
