Based on real historical figures, It's My Party! delves into the turbulent backstory of the fight to pass the 19th Amendment. Facing an uphill battle in Washington, young suffragists employed increasingly radical tactics to make their voices heard, leading to bitter rivalries and a generational split that threatened to tear the suffragists’ movement apart from the inside. Their battle did not win the right for all women to vote. That day came much later. Even today, we take to the streets to advocate for our causes. Join us and be Inspired!

It's My Party! was originally developed in conjunction with Pipeline Playwrights.
