Yes, that little girl looks like you....but it was me.  And that was my mother, your grandmother....and here she is, with her mother, marching......for the suffragettes.  A long time ago......

Back when they got tomatoes thrown at them.. back when the thought of voting was just a dream.

(Sighs heavily)  Where did my dreams go?  I saw your father, and all my dreams...they all went into one dream - marriage and a family.  But before that, I wanted to help people.....I hated when I saw what happened in Europe, during and after the war.  I used to organize groups of women to send canned foods, and different items to churches over there.  Things like ...needles, thread....books, paper, pens.....hard to get items that I used to get letters of thanks from saved some.....

        (She holds them up and her daughter looks at them)

I am going to help your group,....whatever your father thinks. For a change.....maybe it's time for me to do a little thinking....about what I'm going to do next......

         (They look at the photos as lights dim)

Like this monologue?  
I have a collection for seniors available now -dozens of monologues that are proven successes onstage - from Kennedy Center to Burma. Be a winner in your next audition/showcase/class.

Thanks for supporting the theater - and those who write for it!
