• We Did It For You!

    Thursday, November 4, at 7:00 pm via Zoom


    There was a time when women couldn’t have jobs and had no voting rights. Women were property passed from father to husband. High-school student Melanie must learn how things changed.


    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. It is an entertaining and quick tour through the journey, starting with the struggle women had in the 17th century Puritan Revolution through to our 21st century empowered women politicians.

    This presentation is a brand new filmed version of We Did It For You! It has many surprises in it for those who have seen the staged version. Stay after for a Q&A with the filmmakers.
