Women’s Suffrage Centennial

This feature gave me a chance to research the women’s suffrage movement in Hollywood and my own family. American women finally got the constitutional right to vote in August 1920, when the 19th amendment was ratified and signed into law. My Quaker ancestors were among those fighting for this vital democratic right.

Here are the stories that ran in the Aug. 18 issue of Variety.

And a link to a list of films and shows with suffragettes and women’s libbers that I put together for our website.
