Sadie Hawkins was a character in the classic comic strip Li'l Abner, created by Al Capp.
Sadie, a 'spinster', proclaimed Sadie Hawkins Day, on which unmarried girls pursued bachelors in a foot race, with matrimony as the consequence. The role-reversing tradition caught on in schools around the country, and the Sadie Hawkins Dance was born.
