In these days of national sorrow, reflection, and protest, we stand with all who are working to create a more inclusive future for people of every race. We are also aware that the women’s suffrage movement emerged from the abolition movement only to become deeply divided over race. 

           As a troupe of women who strive to be role models, we work intentionally to be inclusive and to educate our audiences about the multi-racial story of women’s accomplishments through history.  

         

 

          We do not support institutionalized, systemic, or personal racism.  We know how easy it is to perpetuate racism through microaggressions, language, inactivity, and ignorance.  We recognize that white privilege has infiltrated all aspects of our society and has contributed to the perpetuation of a racist society. 

          We Did It For You! entertains and educates audiences about women’s rights. We draw inspiration from the women of history. Women who want to effect change in the world join our cast pools to spread this positive message. 

          Our stated mission is to inspire and support women and girls to create an inclusive future and equitable world. We do that by working with other women’s organizations and social and economic justice groups who share these values. 

          Women and girls of all colors need to be part of the leadership so that their voices and values are heard. We all benefit by experiencing the power of women who stood and stand for something larger than themselves.

 

As our anthem song says “We Are One”

Women's History and Women's Rights

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. It has been performed across California and eastern Massachusetts for tens of thousands of women, men, and students.  Even with its positive message, the show identifies the problems women are still up against on their road towards equality. A dedicated troupe of volunteer women who care about women's rights and active participation in our democracy are determined to entertain and educate you with this incredible experience.

A Celebration of American Women

One hundred years ago, American women — half of the U.S. population — were not allowed to vote, yet many Americans take that right for granted today, and one out of three eligible women fails to exercise her right.

Vision 2020’s Women 100 is a celebration of American women during the year 2020, when we mark the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: women’s right to vote. We Did It For You! will be one of the sister  programs across the country supporting the 19th Amendment commemoration. Vision2020 Women 100

Suffrage100MA

Suffrage100MA is dedicated to commemorating the upcoming 100th anniversary of the adoption of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, ratified in 1920, prohibiting the federal and state governments from denying citizens the right to vote on the basis of sex. Suffrage100MA is a non-profit coalition that partners and collaborates with many organizations in Massachusetts and throughout the country that are also planning events to celebrate this historic occasion. Our goal is to increase voter participation, provide educational opportunities, celebrate the progress of women’s rights, and shine a light on what is needed to achieve full equality for women. http://suffrage100ma.org
