Join us for an entertaining (and educational!) musical revue that tells the story of how American women won the right to vote. This exuberant and lively performance of sometimes humorous and often touching songs and stories traces the struggle for Women’s Suffrage from its beginnings within the Abolitionist and Temperance Movements all the way through Modern Feminism in the 21st century.
