Event Description

They were tireless organizers. Tenacious fighters. And political geniuses. They were Black and Latinx. Indigenous and immigrant. Together, they won women the right to vote and laid the cornerstone for gender equality in the United States. Yet their stories have rarely been told. Until now.

This August, we give voice to these heroes of the suffrage movement. Join us for the premiere of this innovative new performance. Learn why their fight is far from over.

Finish the Fight: The Story Behind the Story

As part of its examination of the 19th Amendment centennial, The New York Times is publishing a new book, called “Finish the Fight!: The Brave and Revolutionary Women Who Fought for the Right to Vote.” Written by Times journalists, the book explores diverse women who fought for suffrage, but have been less recognized for their work.

The Times also asked playwright Ming Peiffer and director Whitney White to adapt some of the book’s biographies into a new form of theatrical storytelling, with invented scenes and imagined conversations among five women. The events of their lives, and their accomplishments, are real.

This event is free for all to attend. Access details are shared on R.S.V.P. confirmation and on the day of the event.
