ERA ~ The Big Picture

Wild West Women is the proud producer of Tea with Alice and Me, a full length one woman performance that takes the audience to women’s tearooms ~ Seneca, Selfridges, The National Women’s Party, Women’s Bookstores. Of course it is really about a cup of revolution served up in nonviolent direct action. From 1775 through today, Zoe takes you on her militant, revolutionary, feminist call to action. Hundreds of pictures and personal stories transport you to each time and place she describes.

ERA The Heart of Miss Alice Paul

Activist and Artist, Zoe Nicholson tells the story of The Equal Rights Amendment, from Miss Paul’s first insight in 1906 to the May 29, 2018 ratification in Illinois. Zoe sat in the eye of the political storm, on a folding chair in the Illinois rotunda fasting on water for the 37 days leading up to the defeat of the ERA. Inspired by Sonia Johnson and joined by 5 more women, they lobbied, they faced grave danger, they talked with opponents and supporters alike.
Here is the story of radical feminists and the unfinished business of Constitutional Equality. Now, more than ever it is apparent that nothing less will create lasting equality, equity, and representation.
