“The LAVA Center is proud to present Most Dangerous Women, written and directed by Jan Maher, as part of its Social Justice in the Arts and Media Series.
“In the ninth month of the horrific First World War, a group of women from a dozen countries, determined to wage peace, gathered at The Hague and founded the world’s oldest continuous women’s peace organization. Most Dangerous Women tells the story of the founding of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, and subsequent women’s activism for peace and social justice through over a century since, in a readers’ theater compilation of headlines, speech excerpts, stories, poems, and songs taken verbatim from the history makers featured in the play. From Jane Addams and Jeannette M. Rankin to Malala Yousafzai and Greta Thunberg, women of courage, conviction, and compassion have called the world to a higher standard than brute force and destruction as the way to solve disputes.”
