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 have performed this play live for years. During the Covid -19 restrictions, we began doing virtual productions over Zoom. Thousands of people have viewed our live stream performances with great enthusiasm.
With these successes in mind, we decided to enhance our virtual productions by filming the musical in a film studio and recording studio. In addition, we have updated the songs and added a few surprises for those who have seen the stage performances.

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 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
