Not for Ourselves Alone: The Story of Elizabeth Cady Stanton & Susan B. Anthony, part 1
  • Date: Friday, May 17, 2019
  • Time: 12:00 pm
  • Location: William G. McGowan Theater, Washington, DC

Two women, one allegiance. Together Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony fought for women everywhere, and their strong willpower and sheer determination still ripple through contemporary society. Ken Burns’s Emmy Award–winning documentary recounts the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of two pioneers striving to give birth to the women’s movement.
