Women Take the Stage: George Bernard Shaw and Women’s Rights

Join an artistic examination and celebration of a century of women’s rights expansion in New York.  On November 8th 1917, exactly 99 years before Election Day 2016, New York became the first US state to legally allow women to vote. Kicking off a year-long celebration of this occasion, David Staller of Gingold Theatrical Group (producer of the juggernaut performance series, PROJECT SHAW) along with representatives from of UN Women for Peace, Amnesty International, and the National Coalition Against Censorship, present an evening of lively discussion, illustrated by images and film clips of the New York suffrage movement. Actors will perform scenes from George Bernard Shaw’s plays that championed women’s rights, including Mrs. Warren’s Profession, The Apple Cart, and Candida.
