Suffragette (2015) is a historical drama set in 1912 London and starring Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, and Meryl Streep. A young working mother is galvanized into radical political activism supporting the right for women to vote and is willing to meet violence with violence to achieve this end. This film highlights the gritty reality of women fighting for the right to vote 100 years ago. The film is rated PG-13.

We will have a panel including Monroe County Prosecutor, Erika Oliphant, City Council Member, Susan Sandberg, Beverly Calendar Anderson, and Charlotte Ziettlow with Barbara Brosier as our moderator.

This screening is presented by Girls Inc. of Monroe County in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion on how the 19th Amendment and female leadership has created a better future for everyone.

Doors open at 6:30 PM, film begins at 7:00 PM and will run for 106 minutes, and a panel discussion follows the screening. The estimated total length of this program is 3 hours. Proceeds benefit Girls Inc. of Monroe County.
