About the Show

This new work by Tony Award-winning playwright Emily Mann celebrates the life of one of the most important figures of America’s feminist movement!

Themes

  • Gloria Steinem once said, “Being a feminist means that you see the world whole instead of half. It shouldn’t need a name. And one day it won’t. Feminism starts as something very simple. It’s starts as a little child who says ‘it’s not fair’ and ‘you are not the boss of me’. There is something in us that knows that – and it ends up being a world view that questions hierarchy all together.” What does it mean to see the world whole instead of half? How does this idea look in your own life?
  • Steinem emerged as an influential advocate of second-wave feminism in the 1960s. The movement continued to grow and evolve into a third wave, and currently a fourth. How does a movement build upon the successes of its past? How does its history help guide its future? What might a fifth wave look like? What new challenges might it address as the world continues to change?
