Why Do We Know More About Kim Kardashian Than Abigail Adams

Amy Simon is a Mom On A Mission.
When her ten-year-old daughter came home from school one March
stating she was planning on doing her women's history project on Cher, this Writer/Performer/Cultural Herstorian  
knew something needed to be done.  
Drawing on diaries, letters, publications, and biographies and combining theater, history, multimedia, audience interaction, and good old-fashioned story telling, She's History! brings to life the true tales of fabulous females, then and now.  Going back and forth from the past to the present, Amy Simon poignantly finds the funny as she chronicles the struggles and accomplishments of our unheralded, unknown and forgotten heroines whose courage and strength inspire her as she raises her two daughters.  Watch Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony multi-task  just like today's mom - running the house, fixing dinner and corralling the kids, all while working on the Fourteenth Amendment.  See and hear about our first feminist writer Mary Wollstonecraft, and listen, as Frances Wright becomes the first woman to speak in public to "promiscuous" audiences. Meet Bella Abzug, Shirley Chisholm and Sojourner Truth, Lucretia Mott, Eleanor Roosevelt and Golda Meir; Anne Hutchinson and Abigail Adams; Victoria Woodhull (the first woman to run for president) and Hillary Clinton. Learn about bloomers, suffrage, maternal profiling, and the road to Seneca Falls, abolition and more! It's all there in a fast-paced GALA-PALOOZA honoring Female America.

From the mom who brought you
Cheerios In My Underwear
which holds the record as the longest running solo show in Los Angeles.

Amy Simon is a mother, actress, playwright, improviser, published writer, producer, and self-proclaimed Cultural Herstorian, who has been acting in and producing theater for most of her adult life. She writes, blogs, performs and entertains on the radio, online, and onstage furthering her mission to turn the world on to all the fabulous females no one knows anything about. She is the mother of two glorious and "challenging" teenage daughters who can tell you all about the first woman to run for President.
