2019 Women Stage the World Parade

June 11 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

The League of Professional Theatre Women led the 6th Annual Women Stage the World Parade: The Women Count March through Times Square on June 12, 2018, to raise awareness about the underrepresentation of women in theatre and the performing arts. The league wants to see a 50-50 breakdown in professional performance groups by the year 2020. (Photo by Erik McGregor)

Marchers Gather: 5:30PM
Parade Begins: 6PM

Rain or Shine ~ All Are Welcome ~ Invite Friends!

Dress: March participants are encouraged to dress as their favorite historical theatre woman or in all white.

Women Stage the World, an advocacy project of LPTW, is designed to educate the public about the role women play in creating theatre and the gender barriers they face as men continue to outnumber women by 4 to 1 in key roles such as playwright, director, and designer.

Women Stage the World continues a long tradition of activism by women of the theatre. The Suffrage Movement would not have achieved success without our theatrical foremothers, who organized dynamic marches and street pageants.

If you’re a theatre woman or ally interested in participating in the march, please email: WomenStageTheWorld@theatrewomen.org
