Summary
"This book examines the radical change women underwent - and facilitated - from 1880 to 1927, by looking at five case studies of feminist performance: suffragist parades; feminist drama groups; the Gamut Club; the Provincetown Players; the Neighborhood Playhouse; and four successful female Broadway directors - Lillian Trimble Bradley, Rachel Crothers, Edith Ellis, and Minne Maddem Fikse. Viewed collectively, the chapters create an overarching argument as to the nature of firstwave feminist performance."--BOOK JACKET
