Works by Women

Supporting creative work by women

Works by Women San Francisco Is Live

Three years ago when Works by Women was founded by directorLudovica Villar-Hauser, the goal was to support women’s work in theatre across the country and globe. Ludovica envisioned the New York Works by Women group as the first in a growing network of groups. And, today, that dream has started to be realized. We’re thrilled to announce that Works by Women San Francisco has launched a gorgeous blog and its own MeetUp.com group.
 
San Francisco

Works by Women was founded at the start of the 50/50 in 2020 movement, a grassroots organization dedicated to parity in theatre by the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, as a concrete way to support theatrical work written, directed and designed by women in New York City. Putting dollars behind these productions would hopefully encourage artistic directors and producers to produce or present more work by women in the future. Since the fall of 2009, Works by Women has attended 91 productions in the Big Apple.
 
Here’s the note that Christine Guillan Young, founder of Works by Women San Francisco, wrote to us to announce that WbWSF had launched:
 
I wanted to let you know that the Works by Women San Francisco blog is now live! San Francisco/Bay Area Theater women are standing (and making theater!) in solidarity with our NYC sisters. Check it out and please forward the link liberally to your networks. We are excited to be joining the movement. Thank you all for your support and encouragement!
 
Let’s spread the word about this new addition to the Works by Women network. And, let us know if you’re interested in launching a group in your city! E-mail us at worksbywomennyc@gmail.com
