Synopsis

Miss Hobbs, a rich, flighty young woman whose latest cause is radical feminism, induces her girl friend, Beulah Hackett, to leave her husband Percy while also persuading her friend, Millicent Farley, to break her engagement to George Jessup and join the cause. The two rejected men, determined to teach Miss Hobbs a lesson, appeal to millionaire Wolff Kingsearl to tame the feminist. Betting his friends that he will kiss Miss Hobbs within a month, Wolff pretends to be a piano tuner with a heart ailment. Taking pity on the invalid, Miss Hobbs cares for him until she discovers the bet. Furious at his deception, Miss Hobbs denounces Wolff until he succeeds in convincing her that he really loves her. Miss Hobbs then renounces her feminism in favor of matrimony.
