One night only show profiles influential woman

-A A +A

“If a Door Opens, A Journey With Frances Perkins.” written by Taos playwright Charlotte Keefe will be 7:30 p.m., July 26 at the Toolshed in Dixon, for a one night only showing.
The play is a one-woman show starring Keefe and is a tribute to one of the most important and influential women in the United States.
“If A Door Opens” gives insight through a series of stories that informs the audience of Frances Perkins’ life and all she did as the first woman to be secretary of labor.
Perkins came from a New England middle-class family, but became acutely aware of the poverty that was pervasive among immigrants who worked long hours for little pay in unsafe factories.
As a young woman she volunteered at settlement houses and lobbied for labor laws. Her work caught the attention of two New York governors, Al Smith who appointed her to the industrial commission and Franklin Roosevelt who appointed her as head of the New York Labor Department.
