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.
We performed this play live for years, both in person and virtually during the pandemic. We now have a film version with updated songs and a few surprises for those who have seen the stage performances.

“This film must be see by every student is schools in the U.S. and by every congressperson. Powerful....it must go on."

Suffrage100MA has been dedicated to commemorating the 100th anniversary of the adoption of the 19th Amendment, which prohibits the federal and state governments from denying citizens the right to vote on the basis of sex. In 2023, Suffrage100MA will become an online Massachusetts Women’s History Center (MWHC) and Massachusetts Women’s Hall of Fame (MWHOF)! The MWHC and MWHOF will build on our work telling the inclusive stories of the suffragists, and expanding to share inspiring historical and educational information on the important contributions and challenges endured by Massachusetts women of all backgrounds over the centuries, and of major milestones in MA women’s history. http://suffrage100ma.org
