12 Angry Men read by 12 Impassioned Women
About 12,000 Voices:
A National Voter Registration Initiative
"12 Angry Men" was written in 1954, 19 years before women were permitted to serve on juries in all 50 states.
Over the weekend of April 5-8, 2019, play readings of Reginald Rose’s drama “12 Angry Men” were presented by impassioned women all over the country at community colleges, law schools, universities, high schools, community and regional theaters, and community centers. In over 60 communities across 23 states (plus one in Canada),
over 1,000 Women participated in readings
with over 6,000 audience members and over 12,000 people reached.
Women on stages across the country read a play about the power one person can have when they speak with conviction in our judicial system. After each play reading, cast, crew, and audience members updated their voter registration and were encouraged to engage in their own community to increase voter registration and turnout.
