Program in Theater presents
Women in Theatre: Issues for the 21st Century

I'd like to thank everyone who spoke at and attended the sold-out "Women in Theatre" conference last month, including those of you who watched the proceedings via the live streaming video.

Feedback has been enthusiastic and supportive, which motivates us to plan follow-up events for next year and beyond.

The conference is now archived on Princeton's WebMedia site.  Feel free to access the recording of the day's events and encourage your students, colleagues, subscribers, and anyone you think might be interested in hearing those stimulating panels to visit the archived video.

Keep an eye on this web page for valuable advocacy information, such as the materials already posted here.

And, join the Women-in-Theatre listserv sponsored by the Program in Theatre and the Program in the Study of Women and Gender here at Princeton.  Once it's up and running, it will be a useful resource for information sharing and discussion about all the relevant issues.  To join, send an email to me.

Thanks again for your support and your commitment to women working in theatre.

My best,
Jill Dolan
