The League of Professional Theatre Women will lead the Women Count March to advocate for equal representation for women in theater on Tuesday, June 12.

March participants will gather outside Circle in the Square Theatre starting at 5:30pm that evening. The march will commence at 6pm and weave through Times Square and the Broadway district. The event is free, and all theater women and allies are invited to participate.

The march will also bring awareness to #OneMoreConversation, a social media advocacy action towards gender parity, which asks theatrical decision-makers to have one more conversation with a woman candidate before making a final hiring decision.

The League of Professional Theatre Women has been championing women and leading the gender parity conversation in the professional theater for over 35 years. To increase visibility of and opportunities for women in the field, the organization spearheads public programming, advocacy initiatives, events, and publications that raise awareness of the importance of nurturing women's voices in the theater world and the world at large.
