 Philadelphia’s women are justifiably enraged by the recent Supreme Court reversal of 50 years of precedence effectively overturning Roe v Wade and Planned Parenthood v Casey, and upholding Dobbs v Jackson. This rally is to encourage Philadelphians and Pennsylvanians to take their anger to the polls in November.  This event is in keeping with our year-long engagement project: Your Voice. Your Power. Your Vote:  Making Democracy Work. 

 

Join the Philadelphia Commission for Women, the Philly Chapter of NOW, and the Coalition of Labor Union Women on Independence Day. Confirmed speakers include the presidents of Philly and PA NOW and NARAL Prochoice America, representatives of the Coalition of Labor Union Women, AFSCME Retirees, Civic Saturday.

"This is the kind of work that begs for post-curtain discussion with people who are and are not at all like you. That’s the reason live theater exists: as a tool for illumination, understanding, and above all, building a community based on challenging ideas and making intellectual connections." -Broad Street Review

 Philadelphia Women’s Theatre Festival (PWTF) begins its annual play festival on August 4 and ends on August 7. This year’s festival showcases seven new plays by Philadelphia playwrights all aimed at breaking down the stigma that surrounds the discussion and treatment of mental illnesses. This powerful line-up offers stories of loss, love, and ultimately hope that is sorely needed in a community struggling to recover from the emotional and psychological effects of a pandemic. In a revolutionary manner the shows aim to increase “awareness around isolation, invisibility, and stigmas.” This year’s festival is set to take place at the Arden Hamilton Family Arts Center: 62 N. St. Philadelphia, PA 19106.
