Epoch Arts  invites you to join the girls of Breaking Silences in an original play, “We As Women.”

Inspired by a women’s suffrage poem, about the journey of women, the play begins in 2013 at school with the girls complaining about their lives.

When they are transported to a different time period, they come to realize the struggle that women have weathered and continue to face.
