Theatre Chat spotlights our Broadway producers, composers, stars that came out in breaking social media numbers to show support for Women’s Equality! We share exclusive quotes! They join decades of activists like Susan B. Anthony, Coretta Scott King, modern day Ellen DeGeneres.. the list is long and includes possibly our first woman president Hillary Clinton.
According to Wikipedia “Women’s Equality Day is a day proclaimed each year by the United States President to commemorate the granting of the vote to women throughout the country”, so why do we have children asking our possible future President Hillary Clinton, if she will get paid the same as a man? If you missed it, here it is. Little girl asks Hillary Clinton about equal pay in the most adorable way.
Women in the United States were granted the right to vote on August 26, 1920, when the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was certified as law, but still today women and men are demanding change for Women’s Equality. Broadway Global is happy to see Tony Award winning composer Cyndi Lauper (Kinky Boots) join countless Broadway talents in social media post that include Divaa N’Kenge (Motown), Olivier Award winner Lesli Margherita (Zorro, Matilda, Dames at Sea), Lesli joined the ladies of Matilda in support the Equal Rights with hashtag post #eranow #womensrights #strongwomen or Twitter @matildabroadway. But it was the cast of Something Rotten in costumes that included Theatre Chat favorite Linda Griffin (42nd Street, Original cast of Disneyland’s Aladdin) that sparked many shared post. On the Town, George Takei’s anticipated true life musical Allegiance cast found time to share Women’s Equality, as well as Broadway Producer Sue Vaccaro (Empire the Musical).
N’Kenge (Motown) shared an exclusive for examiner readers, “Women are the backbone of America, they are inventors, warriors and raising our future presidents. Equality is a must!”

Corey Brunish shared a quote by Ellen DeGeneres “I’m not an activist; I don’t look for controversy. I’m not a political person, but I’m a person with compassion. I care passionately about equal rights. I care about human rights. I care about animal rights.”
