Why Do We Know More About Kim Kardashian Than Abigail Adams?
Amy Simon knew something needed to be done when her ten-year-old daughter came home from school, stating she was planning on doing her women’s history project on Cher, or Janet Jackson.
Combining theater, history, multi-media, audience interaction, and good old-fashioned story telling, SHE’S HISTORY! brings to life the true tales of fabulous females, then and now.
Writer/Performer/Cultural Herstorian Amy Simon spent years researching diaries, letters, publications, and biographies and created this unique herstorical and often hersterical edutaining theatrical presentation. Going back and forth from the past to the present, this Mom On A Mission poignantly finds the funny as she chronicles the struggles and accomplishments of our unheralded, unknown and forgotten heroines whose courage and strength inspire her as she raises two daughters.
Watch Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony multitask – just like today’s mom – running the house, fixing dinner and corralling the kids, all while working on the Fourteenth Amendment. Hear about our first feminist writer Mary Wollstonecraft, and witness Sojourner Truth’s powerful Ain’t I Woman speech. Learn how Alice Paul stole President Wilson’s parade, and see how she suffered for the cause. Watch Nancy Pelosi become the First Female Speaker of The House. Be inspired by courageous Bella Abzug, Shirley Chisholm’s humanity, indomitable Malala Yousafzai’s, Victoria Woodhull (the first woman to run for president) and Hillary Clinton. Bloomers, suffrage, maternal profiling, the road to Seneca Falls, abolition and more are all there in a GAL-A-PALOOZA honoring Female America
