Touching on women such as Clara Barton, Florence Nightingale, Madame Curie, Amelia Earhart, Helen Keller, Anne Sullivan, Harriet Tubman, Margaret Mead, and Eleanor Roosevelt, the presentation covers the fields of science, exploration, education, public life, and literature.
The performer adopts the role of a time traveler sliding effortlessly from one impersonation to another while referencing still to others. This imaginary journey is supported through the use of rear-screen slide projector, frequent costume changes, and small stage props.
The teaching of history to our young people, too frequently, may slide into a litany of the accomplishments of famous men, while omitting the equally important work of the opposite sex. Though in no way diminishing the accomplishments of men, nor denigrating the role many women choose to play as homemakers, They Made a Difference allows your student to visit other sides of life, and does so in a fashion that is both educational and entertaining.
