They Must Be Women Now! follows Charleen (alias Sweet Tea), who like her ancient predecessor, Sophocles’ Antigone, has a big mouth that gets her into trouble.
Fired from her high-powered job in Atlanta where she finally had enough of men interrupting her and taking credit for her ideas, she returns to her home in Half Way, Georgia, where her feisty mother is the owner of Miss Althea’s Bridal Boutique and Bail Bonds. Caught in various traps forged by their own time, culture and individual journeys, it is the characters' job to discover themselves and "become women now."
