“As theatre artists, we are storytellers and influencers, and we have a lot to say. Our work collectively reaches millions of people. Every decision we make matters. We are all participating in the cultural moment that is inspiring a groundswell of new feminist language…Our job, the people in this room, is to keep telling stories that put dynamic women at the center and to keep challenging the status quo of what those women look like.”

The League of Professional Theatre Women (a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization) has been championing women and leading the gender parity conversation in the professional theatre for over 35 years. Since its founding, the LPTW’s membership has grown to 500+ members of theatre artists and practitioners of all backgrounds, across multiple disciplines, working in the commercial and non-profit sectors. To promote visibility and increase opportunities for women in the field, the LPTW spearheads events, public programming, advocacy projects, media, and publications that celebrate industry luminaries, preserve the legacy of historic visionaries, raise awareness of the importance of nurturing women’s voices, and shine a spotlight on the imperative of striving for gender parity and fostering a diversity of expression, both in the theatre world and the world at large.
