Ladies of Liberty
Celebrating Suffrage and the
History of Women’s Rights in America
- 100 Years Strong -
This acclaimed musical revue - imagined, created, and performed by NYC award-winning cabaret artist and actress, Valerie diLorenzo, celebrates the 2020 Centennial of how women won the right to vote, as it relates the history of women’s rights in America. The beginnings of the Suffragette journey and its connections with early Civil Rights movements are included, and the show brings us up to modern day and the feminist legacy of the #MeToo movement and female empowerment—all through exuberant, lively, sometimes humorous, and often touching songs.
This LIVE performance is both entertaining and engagingly educational.

"LADIES OF LIBERTY, was one of the most remarkable events – of any kind – that I have ever attended. This brilliant one-woman performance traced the roots of suffrage from its roots all the way to 21st century feminism. Her genius was to illustrate the struggles and triumphs using songs, stories, and readings that were sometimes humorous, sometimes touching, and always deeply affecting. It can be hard to pull off an event like this, and I can think of no one who has done it better or more effectively than Ms. diLorenzo. The audience literally went wild."
- Penny Wright, Director of Programming, Rogers Memorial Library
"From beginning to end LADIES OF LIBERTY is a fantastic show for people of all ages. I thought I knew a lot about women’s rights but seeing the fight put to music with original songs from the period was eye-opening. And it brings you right up to today’s woman so it is a real joy to see and hear."
- Judi, League of Women Voters
"LADIES OF LIBERTY is an awe-inspiring, outstanding performance of songs, script and screen images, created as part of the Hamptons League of Women Voters 2017 celebration of the 100th anniversary of women winning the vote in NYS. It exceeded everyone’s expectations and received rave reviews."
