UNCW Theatre Presents The Inferior Sex

It’s the summer of 1972. In midtown Manhattan, a small woman’s magazine is on the verge of collapsing and threatens to dash the hopes and dreams of a group of women tired of being treated as second-class. The Inferior Sex is a poignant and hilarious behind-the-scenes look at a woman’s magazine that gets political, faces hard truths and breaks new ground in an ever-changing world.

The Inferior Sex will run at 7 p.m. on January 29 & 30 in the SRO Theatre in the UNCW Cultural Arts Building. Because this is a workshop production, tickets are free for both students and the general public. Following the performance, there will be a Q & A with the playwright, Jacqueline  E. Lawton.

Content Warning: The Inferior Sex is set in a women's magazine in 1972. The women discuss issues of sexism, sexual assault, sexual harassment, sexuality, racism, and systemic racism.
