We hear from Elizabeth-Town, that an odd Sect of People have lately appeared there, who go under the Denomination of Regulators; there are a Dozen of them, who dress themselves in Women’s Cloaths, and painting their Faces, go in the Evening to the Houses of such as are reported to have beat their Wives; where one of them entering in first, seizes the Delinquent, while the rest follow, strip him, turn up his Posteriors, and flog hm with Rods most severely, crying out all the Time, Wo to the men that beat their Wives

an excerpt from the pennsylvania journal in 1752, describing a band of dudes who dress in women’s clothing/makeup and beat up domestic abusers, as part of an accountability process i’d imagine.
