100 Years of Women: A Costume Gala
In 1910 we couldn't vote and were still considered property. In 1920 we rebelled, bobbing our hair, rouging our knees, and rolling our stockings down. By 1930 we had earned the right to vote. In the mid-1940s we kissed our husbands goodbye and left our homes and children for the factories in support of WWII. The 1950s saw us wanting to emulate Lucille Ball and June Cleaver. Twiggy was all the craze in the 1960's and free love abounded in the seventies along with the phrase "You've come a long way, baby," giving us permission to smoke. Big hair with lots of Auqanet and verbal sparring with the word "bitch" stole the scene in the 1980s. Pay for women is rising in the nineties but still not equal to men in the corporate world. It's nearly 2011 and we are still fighting for equality and the right to do as we please with our own bodies and our fathers continue to "give us away" at our weddings, but we have come a long way baby and it's time to celebrate that!

Please join us in celebrating the accomplishments of women over the last 100 years and pay tribute to our mothers, grandmothers, great-grandmothers, and all the women who fought tirelessly so we can be who we are and do what we love to do today! This unique fundraiser for Pink Banana Theatre Co., The M.U.T.E.S. (a silent, woman-led theatre troupe) and a local women's charity (TBD) features performances by female artists and woman-led groups. Information will be available on local women's groups and businesses, and costumes will abound! Dress as a woman from history who has inspired you (optional) or simply come to check out the other great costumes. View artwork by female artists, enjoy live entertainment and maybe even win a door prize!
