A Woman's Place

A WOMAN’S PLACE by Susan Riskin
Directed by Rachel Bowditch
Presented at HERE Performance Art Center, New York City, April 2001.

Throughout the centuries, women like Margaret Sanger have fought for basic rights, like birth control and the right to choose. A Woman’s Place is a theatrical documentary that explores the voices of men and women who have made a difference and celebrates these battles and struggles that have helped define what a woman’s place is today. The text of A Woman’s Place is taken directly from letters, diaries, speeches, interviews, and writings of historical figures from Virginia Woolf to Margaret Sanger to Florence Nightingale, whose words made a significant impact on history. These voices weave a dynamic dialogue that spans different centuries across geo-political boundaries.
