Supporting theatrical work written, directed and/or designed by women.
Under 20% of plays produced on American stages are written or directed by women, and of those most are at the smaller theatres where remuneration is minimal. WORKS BY WOMEN is dedicated to redressing the situation by encouraging theatre-goers to choose to see plays by women, supporting their work and showing producers equity matters to their audiences.
WORKS BY WOMEN is an informal/ad hoc group of friends, colleagues, and theatre professionals who go to the theatre whenever possible to see work written, directed and designed by women. Founded by Ludovica Villar-Hauser in the fall of 2009, WORKS BY WOMEN was conceived as a call to action in response to 50/50 in 2020, a grassroots organization dedicated to achieving parity by the 100th anniversary of American suffrage. It’s time.
