Inspired by real events, Happy Family is a play about one determined woman.  In the 1970s she led a group of working women who sued a major corporation for equal pay and equal opportunity.  With the help of a roving civil rights lawyer, they won.  It took them ten years of hardship, but they won.

The play was written and produced by Roy Schreiber, a retired professor of history at Indiana University South Bend.

The broadcast of Happy Family on WVPE is underwritten by the League of Women Voters of the South Bend Area.
