NEW! Program Guide (PDF)

It’s the summer of 1972, and while Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm campaigns to become the first Black female president, eight inspired women come together to create a new magazine for “feminists who love fashion.” But in the charged era of Vietnam and Watergate, cross-currents of race and politics challenge their friendships as well as the magazine’s very survival. The Inferior Sex provides timely and humorous insight to what it means to find your politics, find your community, and ultimately find your voice, in an ever-changing world.

*7:15 PM Pre-show Chat: Hangar Interim Artistic Director, Shirley Serotsky will moderate a conversation with M. Nicole Horsley, Assistant Professor, Center for the Study of Culture, Race, and Ethnicity, Ithaca College. They will discuss the history of Feminism, especially as it relates to the play.
