Just the Beginning
A feature length documentary film exploring the past, present and future of women’s political power through the lens of the 100-year history of the League of Women Voters (LWV) and allied groups. In 1920, winning the right to vote with the ratification of the 19th amendment to the Constitution was just the beginning for women as agents of political power. These are the hidden stories of what came next and what’s at stake today.
Expected Release: January 2020
Just the Beginning
Why It Matters
Today, many Americans are fed up with the partisanship and gridlock in politics, which constrain the implementation of practical solutions to problems that affect them every day. Discouraged and frustrated by the slow pace of progress on issues they care about, people are looking for models of hope and ways to work together to solve problems and strengthen communities--a way to form that “more perfect union” promised by our founders. The economy, education, health care, the environment, and many other issues, each call for creative ideas and thoughtful action to create meaningful change. Just The Beginning seeks to explore how women’s political action, passion, and power (which is only now being felt and realized) can shape the future and drive solutions to the problems facing America.
