25th Anniversary Screening of One Woman, One Vote Documentary
Press Release · Tuesday, January 14, 2020

Washington, DC

On Thursday, January 23, at 7 p.m., in conjunction with the current exhibit Rightfully Hers: American Women and the Vote, the National Archives presents a screening and panel discussion of the 25th anniversary version of the PBS documentary One Woman, One Vote, featuring an introduction by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Reserve a seat.

One Woman, One Vote documents the struggle that culminated in the passing of the 19th Amendment and the 70-year struggle for women’s suffrage. Discover why the crusaders faced entrenched opposition from men and women who feared that votes for women would ignite a social revolution.

A panel discussion with Lottie Joyner (Editor-In-Chief, The Crisis magazine) and Rebecca Boggs Roberts journalist, radio show host, and author of Suffragists in Washington DC: The 1913 Parade and the Fight for the Vote, will follow the film.

Presented in partnership with the One Woman, One Vote Film Festival, and the 2020 Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission.

Related Exhibit Rightfully Hers: American Women and the Vote commemorates the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment by looking beyond suffrage parades and protests to the often overlooked story behind this landmark moment in American history. This fuller retelling of the struggle for women’s voting rights illustrates the dynamic involvement of American women across the spectrum of race, ethnicity, and class to reveal what it really took to win the vote for one-half of the people. On display in the Lawrence F. O’Brien Gallery of the National Archives Museum in Washington, DC, through January 3, 2021. 

Presented in conjunction with our exhibition: Rightfully Hers: American Women and the Vote.
