The League of Women Voters and Theatre Oxford will present It’s My Party! by Ann Timmons, directed by Jackie Daniels, as part of a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.

What happens when two different factions ignite political change using wildly different tactics? “It’s My Party!” explores the generational split that threatened the suffragists’ march toward the 19th Amendment. Competing strategies, daring stunts, and bitter rivalries abound, along with the hope and persistence it takes to get something done in Washington! Featuring famous suffragists Alice Paul, Ida B. Wells-Barnett, and Carrie Chapman Catt, among others.
