Support We Did It For You!
with your end of year gift

The cast and crew of We Did It For You! Women's Journey Through History want to thank you for all your support this year in helping us make our dream possible. In spite of the pandemic, we were able to keep performing and spreading this positive message to audiences around the country. We appreciate everyone who has come to our performances, virtual or otherwise, and are truly grateful when people and organizations provide us with the funds we need in order to keep going. 
We have a bold plan for 2021 to inspire teenagers and young adults into action. We are planning to create a high-quality filmed version of We Did It For You! Women's Journey Through History to show in schools. See our film trailer. We are in contact with teachers, schools, and filmmakers as we plan this rollout next year.

if you want to be part of the action. help us realize our $5,000 goal for the end of the year. Your donation will help make this film possible. Donations go through our fiscal sponsor Fractured Atlas, making them tax-deductible.
In We Did It For You! Women’s Journey Through History, a high school student has a history project to figure out who has done the most for women of today. She learns the answer from a series of women who come back from the past to share 400 years of lived history. Audiences love the positive message that overarches the educational and fun script, and they have urged us to bring this musical into schools and history classes. 

We have hundreds of testimonials from our performances. An audience member said: “I taught U.S. History in community college for 30 years and I learned so much from this show!” Another one said: “As a teacher let me say I wish you would present it in every high school civics class in US .” This is my favorite: “I LOVED it. I’m 11 and it got me interested in women’s rights.”


"So GREAT! I learned a BUNCH I didn't know (and I was a US History teacher)." 
"Brings me to tears every time. Thank you to all of you for portraying these women and thank you to all the women who came before us."

“Your play always gives me chills and never fails to bring tears of pride!” 

“It reinforced what I have watched especially through PBS on the centennial this year but also broadened the scope to bring it to 2020!!! The teaching moment made it real.”

“Thank you all so very much! This was educational, inspirational and enjoyable!"

"Great connection to the next generation."

“Learned a lot. I was shocked to learn so many states did not ratify the ERA. It’s sickening that states are still fighting against this.” 

“Thanks so much for making this available to so many. I hope young women are seeing this. They need to know who came before them to make life better for them now. In this age of possibly moving backwards on human rights in general, this history is so important. It is good to have previous role models to encourage speech and action today.”

“I have never had greater respect for what it takes to shift to livestream platform and learn technology with all the gusto and persistence of our ability.” 

“Great show!  So proud of what all these women did! Thank you all for offering!”  

“It was inspiring to hear that 102 years ago, women continued to work for the vote, even amidst an epidemic."

“The show was a masterpiece of creative, electronic showmanship. I know how quickly you invented, manipulated, and stretched new technology to deliver to a stay-at-home audience a socially conscious, entertaining program.”
