Two DVDs Celebrate Political History

These two DVDs highlight an important milestone in American history: the struggle for and achievement of the right of women to vote and to be full citizens in our democracy. It’s hard to believe today, but there were many (both men and women) who fought against women’s right to vote and felt that full female suffrage would destroy the family. Some of the old arguments sound amazingly contemporary today and provide a stimulating starting-point for discussion.

All of the DVDs are closed captioned CCgraphic--sm. The DVDs are available from the Her Own Words® catalog, PO Box 5264, Madison WI 53705-0264; phone 608-271-7083; fax 608-271-0209; email jocelynriley@herownwords.com.
