Fundraiser: Top Girls at Live Bait Theatre

We would like to invite you all to support Chicago Books to Women in Prison’s next fundraiser, a play called Top Girls at Chicago’s  Live Bait Theatre.

Here’s what wikipedia has to say about Top Girls

The play is set in Britain and implicitly condemns the increasing incidence of Thatcherist values in society, and especially their effect on Feminism . . . It comments on the contrast between American feminism, which celebrates individualistic women who acquire power and wealth, and British socialist feminism, which involves collective group gain. I  The play argues against the style of feminism that simply turns women into new patriarchs and argues for a more socialist feminism that is about caring for the weak and downtrodden. The play questions whether it is possible for women in society to combine a successful career with a thriving family life.

We have about 20 tickets left for each night on Sat, March 15 (8p) and Sun, March 16 (7p). Tickets are sliding scale: $15-$25. Bring a date!
