Fragile Freedom, a play written and performed by Christine Emmert
May 9, 2015 @ 7:30 pm
Friends of Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site present the play, Fragile Freedom, written and performed by Christine Emmert. This one-woman play takes an historical look at the fight for women’s political freedom and includes a look at figures, such as Lucy Burns, Lucretia Mott, and Susan B. Anthony. Ms. Emmert draws parallels between the past and the present with a script that is sprinkled with words of wisdom from Maya Angelou, Marian Anderson, Virginia Woolf, Gloria Steinem and others, emphasizing that our freedom as women is still unfinished business.
Refreshments will be served following the performance.
