Whether you’re old school feminist, third wave feminist, or refuse the feminist label. This is an excellent little piece of American history. A stellar cast pulls out the big guns to tell the story of sassy, smart women pushing for women’s rights and thus, rights for us all. Enjoy.
“Iron Jawed Angels recounts for a contemporary audience a key chapter in U.S. history: in this case, the struggle of suffragists who fought for the passage of the 19th Amendment. Focusing on the two defiant women, Alice Paul (Hilary Swank) and Lucy Burns (Frances O’Connor), the film shows how these activists broke from the mainstream women’s-rights movement and created a more radical wing, daring to push the boundaries of political protest to secure women’s voting rights in 1920.”
