Performance: A Pageant of Great Women

A filmed performance event with limited public access. In Hamilton’s play, Woman versus Prejudice, presided over by Justice, enact a court case where over a 100 women are presented as evidence of outstanding achievement. In this reenactment role models have been found amongst the library bookshelves.
