24WORDS the equal rights musical
When: Mar 8 2017
Where: Chicago, United States
24WORDS is the equal rights rock musical that can't be denied "on account of sex."
Take a 90-minute, 200-year odyssey to Equality. From the Revolutionary War and the declaration that “all men are created equal” to the Congressional Vote in the Equal Rights Amendment in 1972. 20 original songs through eras of classical, swing, pop, folk, rock, glam and rap.
SPOILER ALERT! The ERA was never ratified…so women “can be denied on account of sex.” And Illinois is one of the states that said "No" to the ERA. Crazy, right? But you can help pass ERA in Illinois – and get the Amendment ratified and into the Constitution. Come for a great show, meet some great people and get connected to most radical idea on earth: We are Equal.
