Directed by professor Danny Scheie. Adapted by professor Mary-Kay Gamel from the ancient play Ecclesiazusae by Aristophanes in which the women of Athens don men's clothes, take seats in the Assembly, and command a majority of votes to carry a series of revolutionary proposals—including special clauses to secure the rights of the less attractive members of the sex to the service of the younger and handsomer men. Explicit material and adult content.
