25th Anniversary Film Screening: One Woman, One Vote
  • Date: Thursday, January 23, 2020
  • Time: 7:00 pm
  • Location: William G. McGowan Theater

Join us for a screening of the 25th anniversary version of the PBS documentary ONE WOMAN, ONE VOTE, featuring an introduction by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The film documents the struggle that culminated in the passing of the 19th Amendment and the 70-year struggle for women’s suffrage. Discover why the crusaders faced entrenched opposition from men and women who feared the women’s vote would ignite a social revolution.

A panel discussion will follow the film moderated by Lottie Joiner (editor-In-chief, The Crisis magazine), with panelists Rebecca Boggs Roberts, journalist, radio show host, and author of Suffragists in Washington DC: The 1913 Parade and the Fight for the Vote; and  Tsi-tsi-ki Felix, daily news anchor and a Sunday political talk show host on Entravision.

Presented in partnership with the One Woman, One Vote Film Festival, and the 2020 Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission.
