WWIT promotes women's music and theatre projects dealing with political, social and historical issues from a woman's perspective. We respond actively to the political climate in Washington, giving voice to the writers and composers of the D.C. area.
Founded in 2001 by Sidra Rausch as a project of her organization Creative Music Workshop, Inc., a not-for-profit [Section 501(c) (3)] school and theatre, WWIT was established in memory of Sidra's sister, Ronda Schwartz, who died of breast cancer. The first official public performance took place at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in summer 2003. With Karen Berman, a long-time collaborator and friend, as a co-director, WWIT inaugurated the company's work with premiere staged readings August 11 and 12, 2003.
