The emotional and timely story of how two tenacious, smart young women changed the course of American history

IRON JAWED ANGELS is a powerful, inspiring film about endurance, ethics, love of justice, friendship and teamwork, based on the true story of the struggle to guarantee the right to vote for American women.
   The drive and courage of the women (and men also) in the suffrage movement came during a period when women could not own property or bank accounts or have custody of their children in a divorce proceeding. Indeed, in many situations women were regarded AS property.


    Using contemporary music and modern cinematography, IRON JAWED ANGELS tells, in a way that is accessible and appealing to young and old alike, the little-known story of how the Women's Suffrage Movement overcame violence, divisive politics and an indifferent president to amend the U.S. Constitution, guaranteeing women the right to vote.
    Because they would not remain silent or passive, Alice Paul and Lucy Burns changed the face of the suffrage movement, founded the National Women's Party and gained the passage of the 19th Amendment.
    Then, as now, women were not seeking to be treated better than men — they simply wanted the same rights and privileges. Understanding the sacrifice behind the suffrage movement – assault, imprisonment, even torture – underscores the lasting need to speak out and take cohesive action on matters of societal importance.
    NWP strategy and tactics produced an effective blueprint for future civil rights and social issues efforts. The NWP's array of creative methods – parades, public demonstrations, picketing, civil disobedience, hunger strikes, and public education – serve well in the fight against the inequity that continues today.
