As our nation celebrates the centennial anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment giving women in the U.S. the right to vote, Iowa PBS presents Carrie Chapman Catt: Warrior For Women. This compelling one-hour documentary tells the history of the women’s suffrage movement with a focus on one of its fearless champions, Carrie Chapman Catt. Catt lived in Charles City, Iowa, for most of her young adulthood and attended Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. She went on to become one of the leaders in the women’s suffrage movement and came up with a strategy to win women the vote called the “Winning Plan.” Advance screenings will take place across the state throughout the spring and summer. Iowa PBS will host a free advance screening with refreshments and a discussion panel to follow on Saturday, May 2 from 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. at Iowa PBS.
