We Did It For You!

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 has been performed across California, including for the Daughters of the American Revolution, American Association of University Women, Soroptimists International, National Council for Jewish Women, and League of Women Voters.  Over 400 soldiers at the Ft. Irwin National Training Center gave the cast a standing ovation and shook the hands of each and every performer. Thousands of California high school and college students have seen it.

 Alice Paul (played by Libby Franck) stands up for women's right to vote.

In 2017 on Women's Equality Day, We Did It For You! began performances in Massachusetts. 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.
