Iron Jawed Angels tells the remarkable and little-known story of a group of passionate and dynamic young women, led by Alice Paul and her friend Lucy Burns who put their lives on the line – including violent attacks, imprisonment, solitary confinement, and hunger strikes – to fight for American Women’s right to vote. The film follows Paul and Burns in the 1910s as they use peaceful and effective nonviolent strategies, tactics, and dialogues to revolutionize the American feminist movement to grant women the right to vote with the 1920 ratification of the 19th amendment. A panel discussion will follow the film.
