Inspired by the success of similar events, Women's Voices in Washington DC and Women's Theatre Festival in Raleigh, North Carolina (where her play The Lady Scribblers was featured), playwright and director Michaela Goldhaber is leading several members of the “Yeah, I Said Feminist” Theater Salon in organizing the first Bay Area Women’s Theatre Festival in spring 2020.
Throughout March, April & May 2020, the BAWTF will feature full length productions, two readings series and a 24-hour performance festival showcasing work by women+, directed by women+ and done by women+.
(Please see our note on Inclusion below)

Women: baWTF recognizes the limiting nature of the binary use of woman. We welcome anyone on the gender spectrum who identifies either always or some of the time as a woman. We also welcome those who identify as non-binary.
Intersectionality: baWTF works through an intersectional lens for gender parity. We understand and acknowledge that systems of oppression and discrimination are interdependent and span all social categorizations such as race, class, gender, ability, and sexual orientation as they apply to a given individual or group. Addressing one spoke of systematic discrimination or disadvantage means holistically addressing them all.
