Were Suffragists really "”bewildered, deluded creatures with short skirts and short hair” as one legislator called them at the time, or were they in fact brave women who fought hard to win the right to vote?
This 2004 film follows early 1900s women’s suffrage leaders played by Hilary Swank and Frances O’Connor as they wage a sometimes violent and ugly fight that moved the United States toward true democracy.
Co-sponsored by the River Falls Public Library and the American Association of University Women (AAUW) the film starts at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, October 14 in the upstairs meeting room at the library. It is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
