Met with our first high school

It took months, but we finally had our first meeting with high school drama and social studies teachers. We showed them the idea, how the play would fit in with their social studies material, and that the We Did It For You! Resource Book has lots of pre show and post show activities. The drama teacher was already sold on the idea because she brought the student who would direct the show for her senior project. It was so much fun to be talking to people who wanted to take this path.

We know, from our own experience, that the material is life-changing — once you connect to these historical characters and the journey they took in their own lives and how they contributed to so many millions of women’s lives, you can’t go back. You can’t pretend that Alice Paul and the women suffragettes of the 1910s weren’t force-fed raw eggs and milk, or forget the fact that Anne Hutchinson lost her baby because she was put on trial and ex-communicated for speaking in public to men.
