To celebrate the Centennial of the women’s suffrage movement, Auburn Public Theater is hosting a “A Feminist Extravaganza.”
For two nights, the theater will showcase feminist readings and performances from local and regional female writers and performing artists.
“We have to take actions today that 100 years from now, people will look back on and be proud of us for taking,” said Angela Daddabbo, Artistic Director of Auburn Public Theater.
Daddabbo adds that the theater’s idea stems from a need to really educate and continue the movement even today. “Because central New York is the origin of the women’s rights movement, we have an added responsibility to do something to highlight that accomplishment, ” she adds.
