This is a free presentation with the purpose of:
• Providing information about how women finally got the vote and why it is important to know the history of voting rights
• To encourage women to vote
• Sharing info on how we can all be involved in getting out the vote this election
This moving presentation takes a fresh look at a pivotal event in American history from 1916–1920. Iron Jawed Angels tells the true story of how defiant and brilliant young activists Alice Paul, played by Hilary Swank, and Lucy Burns, played by Frances O’Connor, took the women’s suffrage movement by storm, putting their lives at risk to help American women win the right to vote.
Elaine Holtz said, “I asked a friend what it means when people do not vote. She answered, ‘Then we have a government by default.’ My theory is that when people do not vote it tells elected leaders that the people don’t care, therefore why should the leaders do anything we are requesting they do.”
