Join us for a screening of the 1995 documentary One Woman, One Vote, a film called “inspiring” by the New York Times. Watch the story of women activists’ work spanning over 70 years, starting with Elizabeth Cady Stanton in 1848 at Seneca Falls, and followed by Susan B. Anthony, Mary Church Terrell, and other prominent suffragists all the way to the eventual ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920.
Following the screening, there will be a panel discussion by scholars about what the film gets right and where its portrayal of the women’s suffrage movement falls short.
Supported by CELIA, as part of this year’s program, Rising: Women in American Culture since Suffrage, this event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
