Thank you for your interest in advocating for gender equity as a costumed theatre woman ambassador.

We are thrilled for you to get involved in whichever way you feel comfortable – “ Embracing Theater women from our past to inspire gender equality today.” (mission)

There is a role for everyone: activist/performers, costumers, researchers, and fund-raisers, to name four:

  1. Can you commit to one two-hour training/rehearsal session?
  2. Can you commit at least one action a month depending on your schedule?
  3. Can you attend monthly Happy Hour Gatherings to compare notes and make plans? (when possible ;)

If your answer is YES or YES with certain caveats: (We understand that none of us can be sure where work will take us and that no one of us will be present at every event- we want this to be fun, easy, and effective)

Please email yanaland at

and/or join us at our Happy Hour  on June 20th

5:00 till 6:30 at Hi-Life,

477 Amsterdam Avenue at 82nd Street, in Manhattan.

* Please come prepared to propose a character (to research or perform.) Be prepared with answers to: “Who am I?” “What did I do?” “What challenges did I face?” and with a few fun facts about your character. Give some thought to how your Character might be costumed. Feel free to bring a test item or two. Note for costumes we will be raising funds to augment items from our own closets.

Join us in advocating and promoting visibility for theatre women through this initiative. We invite you to join the party!
