On November 15, 1937, the Li’l Abner daily comic strip defied tradition and embraced gender role-reversal when a female character, Sadie Hawkins, chased down and caught herself a man. It became an annual feature in the comic strip and a social movement in real life. Once a year, women could take the initiative by inviting the man of their choice out on a date—rare before 1937—typically to a dance attended by other bachelors and their assertive dates.

Who knows, maybe this is how your great grandparents started dating?
