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 passage of the 19th amendment to the Constitution was just the beginning for women as agents of political power. At the Women’s March on January 21, 2017, the day after the presidential inauguration, millions of people across 60 countries felt that historic day of collective action was just the beginning of a new resistance movement.
After finally winning the right to vote, women suffragists founded the League of Women Voters to be independent of party politics (dominated by men) and help register, educate, and train women to be active, informed, and influential at all levels of government.While the current administration and far right insurgency threaten to reverse much of what women have gained in the last 100 years, #metoo and time’s up demonstrate that women’s political power is only just beginning to be felt.
