About PHASE II: 365 Women a Year: A Playwriting Project
When it comes to documenting his-tory, men have always had the upper hand. Until now! Our goal is to bring 365 women a year from out of the shadows and give their stories the credit they deserve.
About the Project:
365 Women a Year: A Playwriting Project is a playwriting coalition involving more than 200 women writers from across the globe. Each woman has signed on to write one or more short plays about extraordinary women of the past and present. Our goals are to write women into the social consciousness, to empower and promote female playwrights, and to plant seeds of herstory around the country and the world.
365 Women a Year short-play festivals have been happening around the world. We are currently reaching out to a variety of theater venues to promote productions and readings of our plays. We are looking to partner with sister organizations to further our goals.
