If Susan B. Anthony and her pals had i-Phones, Twitter, and Uber drivers, maybe it wouldn't have taken 72 years to win the vote. Maybe. Sally Perkins imagines the suffragists with modern technology as she takes her audiences through the 72-year journey in this interactive, hilarious, and poignant story, revealing the suffragists' struggles, strategies, racism, and endurance. History told like you never heard it in school! Audiences across the country are raving. Appropriate for ages 15 and up. Running time: 60 minutes.
