September Public Program
Ruth Bader Ginsberg: I Dissent
A live performance by Sheryl Faye
Sunday, September 24, 2023
Watertown Savings Bank Meeting Room
Watertown Free Public Library
123 Main Street
Watertown, MA 02472
The Historical Society of Watertown in partnership with Watertown Free Public Library presents Sheryl Faye in this one-woman performance that brings Justice Ginsberg to life. Ginsburg was an American lawyer and jurist who served as an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from 1993 until her death in September, 2020. She objected to different expectations for men and women and prejudice against minority groups. She stands out for her willingness to dissent, disapprove and disagree with conditions of unfairness and inequality. This show is the inspiring story of how she changed her life--and ours.
Ms. Faye attended Emerson College, where she received a BFA in acting. She is currently touring ten one-woman shows to schools, libraries, historical societies and senior centers throughout the United States. Sheryl writes and performs with StageCoach Improv and keeps busy working in films, television and theater in Boston and New York.
This event is supported in part by a grant from the Watertown Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
This program is free and open to the public.
