There was a time when women couldnt have jobs and had no voting rights. Women were property passed from father to husband. High-school student Melanie must learn how things changed. We Did It For You! is a quick tour through the journey that women have taken to get rights in the United States, starting with the struggle women had in the 17th century Puritan Revolution through to our 21st century empowered women politicians. The play focuses on the stories of just some of the women who believed they deserved more than being treated as minors and being extensions of men. The few women portrayed in the play are not the whole story. Women have not only struggled to obtain their rights, they have made contributions that have been overlooked in many history books. In so many areas, women have been the first to accomplish things, have ideas, create inventions, and solve problems.
