    Shaina Taub, who has family ties to Saratoga Springs, wrote the musical and plays the role of Alice Paul, a suffrage movement leader. The musical also covers the generational, racial, and class divisions women fought to overcome.

    Women’s Rights Awareness Campaign Chair Patricia Nugent said she believes the musical will inspire the Saratoga County community to support the Equal Rights Amendment. “Through this event, we aim to not only celebrate the progress made by suffragists but also to highlight the critical work needed to achieve full gender equality in our state,” she said.
