The first rule of Spinster Club...

Sign me up!

In the New Yorker:
Votes for women - step in time!
Q: What are some of the goals of the Spinster Agenda?
A: Increasing the prominence of women in the government, a greater reliance on bike-share programs, the elimination of lonely cats, better television adaptations of the Brontë sisters’ work, further research into cloning Benedict Cumberbatch, the immediate green-lighting of an Emma Thompson and Colin Firth movie with lots of clothed sex that’s set in the eighteen hundreds, Glynis Johns in her “Mary Poppins” costume on the hundred-dollar bill, world peace. 
Q: What if I want to join the Spinster Agenda? What should I do?
A: The easiest way to enlist is to hang around your local yarn shop until someone recruits you. However, if you prefer to be less conspicuous, know that simply watching all of the episodes of “Orphan Black” on your streaming device will alert the Spinster Agenda that you wish to join, and someone will be in touch.
