Why Hire a Performer

Women’s History comes alive with the help of talented Women’s History Performers or Authors. Costumed Performers portray both famous and infamous women from our history with relish and panache. Authors or Presenters bring the unbridled enthusiasm that comes from years of research and writing about a specific woman or  women’s history topic.

Educational and entertaining, women’s history Performers and Authors can add depth and breadth to your programs and events.

National Performers/Authors are available to travel across the country to perform at your event. Performers/Authors listed by state are available to perform only within that state.

To find performers/authors available nationally or within a specific state, use the pull-down list provided below:
