After researching women who have made a difference, the girls based their characters on women such as Alice Paul from the suffrage movement, the 14-year-old Pakistani Malala Yousafzai, Gypsy women from the Holocaust, and other inspiring women.

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.
