Suffragettes UNITE!

Suffragettes UNITE! at the Keybank Rochester Fringe Festival
EMANCIPATION! “War if We Must!” Journey back to a time when women, oppressed and underestimated by society, fought valiantly against the status quo to achieve the rights that we enjoy today. Suffragettes UNITE! is a theatrical portrayal of select woman’s suffrage leaders’ speeches orated during the long battle for the woman’s right to vote. Ann Mitchell opens her ‘women’s convention’ with the impassioned words originally spoken by Sarah C. Owen in Rochester, NY. Ann Mitchell’s passionate portrayal features the charm and rhetoric of the 19th language originally written and orated by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Susan B. Anthony and more. The one - woman costumed performance is being performed ONE night only!
