Playwright Joyce Van Dyke, director Judy Braha, and actor Elaine Vaan Hogue talk about their collaboration on a new one-woman play featuring suffragist and abolitionist Julia Ward Howe, who asks, “What does it do to your soul if you don’t have representation?” The play is a fever dream and a call to action by Howe, who was a playwright, poet, and founder of the American Woman Suffrage Association which supported voting rights for Black women as well as white women. The conversation will draw parallels between Howe’s mission and today’s election.

Join Charlotte Mangin and Sandra Rattley, the makers of UNLADYLIKE2020, as they describe how they created a new visual vocabulary for documentary filmmaking in digital shorts, while elevating the voices of unsung women and little-known heroines who shaped and changed America over 100 years ago, and the women who now follow in their footsteps. In illustrative conversations, Mangin and Rattley share insights on how they crafted the multi-media tools to present history in a bold new way—covering the early years of feminism and suffrage, to the women-led anti-racist work of today.
