We Did It For You! Women's Journey Through History is the story of how women got their rights in America, told by the women who were there. High school student Melanie must write about the most influential woman in history - the play provides her with an entertaining and quick tour through that journey, starting with the struggle women had in the 17th century Puritan Revolution through to our 21st century empowered women politicians. It has been performed across California for thousands of high school students, college students, and adults. On Women's Equality Day 2017, We Did It For You! began performances in Massachusetts. Over 20 performances have been staged throughout the state including Faneuil Hall in Boston and a SOLD OUT 400 seat performance on Nov. 3rd. sponsored by the Needham League of Women Voters.
We Did It For You! is now in a theatrical residency at the Marilyn Rodman Performing Arts Center in Foxboro, MA. If you care about women's rights, come see the show and bring your friends and family. Many come back a second and third time to see it. See www.wediditforyou.org
