About this show

The Lilly Awards honor the accomplishments of women working in the American theater. This year's honorees include celebrated playwright and performer Eve Ensler, the creator of the worldwide sensation The Vagina Monologues and In the Body of the World; Carole Rothman, artistic director and cofounder of Second Stage Theater; actor and activist Lori Myers, creator of the advocacy group Not in Our House, which confronted sexual harassment and assault in theater years before those issues became front-page news; P. Carl, who gave a voice to theatermakers with HowlRound; the amazing dance-theater team of Monica Bill Barnes; and Kelda Roys, the candidate for governor of Wisconsin whose campaign ad went viral when her newborn needed to breastfeed. These winners are people who fight back, stand up, speak loudly, and demand more for women.
