American Experience: One Woman, One Vote available in DVD
The 70-year battle for women's suffrage is the subject of this gripping documentary. One Woman, One Vote documents the struggles both of the leaders and the women who fought along side them. From Elizabeth Cady Stanton to Alice Paul, this film follows the fight for equal rights. Though the U.S. called itself the world's greatest democracy, more than half of its citizens were denied the right to vote. And yet the struggle for equal suffrage split the movement apart, pitting those who were more militant in their approach against women with more conventional strategies of education and lobbying. Narrated by Susan Sarandon, this is a valuable look at an important chapter in American history. ~ Cara Saposnik
If you are looking at an honest review of the effort to achieve suffrage for women, this is the film to start with. The film is cerebral and is likely not flashy enough for the average viewers. However, it covers the facts about the suffrage movement without Hollywood dramatic license. One Woman, One Vote is essential to any discussion about the path to the passage of the 19th Amendment.
