Broadcast: Aug. 30, 2020, at 4:00 p.m.

In the centennial year of the 19th Amendment, Rosario Dawson and Retta guide us through the fight for women’s voting rights, a history that resonates now more than ever. 

"Men their rights and nothing more; women their rights and nothing less.” Written by suffragists Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, women’s rights activists used this rallying cry to demand voting equality. But the suffrage movement included far more voices and perspectives than these two well-known names: throughout the fight for women’s right to vote, generations of diverse activists demanded full access to the ballot box. 

Produced by: The Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission, the National Park Service, and PRX
