California Women Win the Vote

1911. Nine years before the Federal Amendment.

Using both historical materials and live re-enactments, this film presents the dramatic suffrage campaign that won the women of California the right to vote nine years before the Federal amendment. The campaign becomes a role model and motivation for the rest of the country. Today the tactics and spirit of these women are a guide and inspiration for citizen activism in a democratic society. No matter what state you are from, this campaign is a fine example of working for the common good. It’s history and personalities, art and argument, a foundation of civil rights here and throughout the world.

Narrated by Bonnie Franklin.
