March is for... Women and the Arts
(Hmm, that last observation also showed up in the women as museum directors bit above!) So, a special effort will be made to produce the work of women in the fall of 2014. It'll be called the Women's Voices Festival, and will include 45 DC theatres, all presenting plays written by women. It may not permanently lead to women's perspectives being fully included on the theater scene. "But the festival does throw down a gauntlet, in the cause of striking a more equitable gender balance — especially given that surveys show that women make up as much as two-thirds of the theatergoing audience across the nation," says The Washington Post.
So do something in March to celebrate your own rich history. Why not even make some history yourself?
'Til next time,
