One Woman, One Vote
Wed, March 5th, 2014 | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

How could America call itself the world’s greatest democracy, but deny the right to vote to more than half its citizens? One Woman, One Vote documents the 70-year battle for woman suffrage through the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution.

From Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s electrifying call for women’s rights at Seneca Falls in 1848, to the last no-holds-barred fight in 1920, this film illuminates the story of the fledgling alliances that grew into a sophisticated mass movement. The film will be introduced by writer/producer Ruth Pollack.
