The fight for women’s vote in America is one of the noblest and largest non-violent human rights campaigns in world history.

Enduring physical and verbal attack, jail, torture, personal loss and conflict, women and many men fought for women’s suffrage for more than 70 years.

Shining the light on that battle is the goal of this year’s Dangerous Women’s presentation of Victorious 2020, according to Rhona Baron, a performer, artist and award winning edutainment designer who has served as creative director and producer for the past three years.

Dangerous Women formed in 2017 when a women’s history showcase founded by Susan Butruille and Mandi Wickline in 2015 moved from Faith Lutheran Church in Leavenworth to Icicle Creek Center For The Arts.

The group’s mission is to build community by creating performances that honor women whose courage changed the course of history.

This year, local female actors, dancers, singers, rappers and musicians bring characters like Inez Milholland, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton to life.

Over the past four years, more than 40 women have participated on stage and behind the scenes with Dangerous Women. Contributors have included local drama teachers, a yoga instructor, a belly dancer, a certified Hula instructor, a concert cellist, a maker of giant puppets and noted sopranos, actors, rappers and more.

Dangerous Women brings Victorious 2020 to Icicle Creek Center for the Arts, Snowy Owl Theater April 25 at 7 p.m. and April 26 at 2 p.m. Tickets are on sale now at https://icicle.org/find-events/
