Women in Action uses performance and creativity to develop and celebrate women’s resilience, leadership and activism in their communities.

Led by theatre maker Tessa Buddle the group meet weekly on Wednesdays, 1-3pm usually at the Everyman Theatre on Hope Street, Liverpool, with the option to join online via Zoom. These weekly sessions involve creative activities, training and discussion that explore a whole range of themes relevant to women today.

In 2023 and 2024 the Women in Action group is working towards an interactive drama drawing on 1960s media archives to explore issues of gender, sexuality, equality and reproductive rights. The performance forms part of a BBC Centenary project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and led by Dr. Marcus Collins, which is rethinking the BBC’s relationship to social change.
