50/50 in 2020: Parity for Women Theatre Artists
LPTW is a co-sponsor along with Women’s Project and New Perspectives Theatre.
Working proactively for parity for professional women theater artists!
Our objective is to achieve parity for professional women theater artists by 2020. Even today, women playwrights, directors, and designers receive fewer than 20% of the professional production opportunities nationwide. Visit 50/50 on Facebook!
