Lilla Day Monroe passed the bar in 1894 and became the first female lawyer in Kansas. Zoe’s original play depicts the story of the Topeka-based suffragette, who was a fierce fighter for women’s rights and underprivileged citizens, and worked daily to give them the rights they deserved. In addition to serving as the president of the Kansas State Suffrage Association, Monroe worked as a journalist, establishing and editing The Club Woman and The Kansas Woman’s Journal. In her play, Zoe urges the audience to “do something; be something” and take a stand. She also incorporates song and poetry into her project.
