Amy Simon in She Is History, a play about women who make and made history. Watch Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony multitask – just like today's mom - running the house, fixing dinner and corralling the kids, all while working on the Fourteenth Amendment. Hear about our first feminist writer Mary Wollstonecraft, and witness Sojourner Truth's powerful Ain't I Woman speech. Learn how Alice Paul stole President Wilson's parade, and see how she suffered for the cause. Watch Nancy Pelosi become the First Female Speaker of The House, learn about Shirley Chisholm's humanity, and what inspired Bella Abzug. Hear about Pat Schroeder, Katie Couric, Malala Yousafzai, Eleanor Roosevelt, Golda Meir, Victoria Woodhull (the first woman to run for president) and Hillary Clinton, bloomers, suffrage, maternal profiling, the road to Seneca Falls, abolition and more! It's all there in a GALA-PALOOZA honoring Female America. Written and performed by Amy Simon. 75 minutes.
