Profiles of Women Past & Present were created by the Thousand Oaks Branch of AAUW. The scripts in these books provide images of women as positive role models. Each of the three volumes offers wonderfully written monologues complete with costume and prop suggestions.

Each year our Women’s History group create new scripts of women who are current role models which they provide to local schools for classroom use. The 2015 Profiles of Women scripts can be downloaded here.
