Sadie Hawkins (Li'l Abner Comic Strip) It’s hard to believe, but the "Sadie Hawkins Dance" was borne from a comic strip created by Al Capp in the late 1930s. Sadie was one of his characters in the popular, long-lasting cartoon strip. She was a resident of Dogpatch and referred to as "the homeliest gal in the hills" who grew tired of waiting for suitors. The first annual Sadie Hawkins Day was not a dance, but a foot race, wherein the spinster ladies of the town would give chase to the unmarried men. If caught, matrimony would be the consequence. Within a year of the strip appearing (November of 1937), Sadie Hawkins became an event that took on a life of its own as it swept through high schools and college campuses across the nation. The Sadie Hawkins Dance requires a reversal of roles so that the ladies ask the young men of their choosing to accompany them on the date. In other words, the women become the aggressors.
