Join us for a virtual preview of the new PBS documentary series, American Experience The Vote to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and women’s right to vote. The film tells the dramatic story of the epic crusade waged by American women. Exploring how and why millions of 20th-century Americans mobilized for — and against — women’s suffrage, The Vote brings to life the unsung leaders of the movement and the deep controversies over gender roles and race that divided Americans then — and continue to dominate political discourse today.
This online event will take place via OVEE, a service that allows participants to watch streaming media together and chat live in a virtual theater. All you need to participate is a computer, tablet or other device with a good internet connection. Before the event, we recommend you run a test to ensure OVEE works properly on your device.
