This PBS documentary is a sweeping look at the women’s suffrage movement, from Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s famous Seneca Falls call to arms to the passage and ratification of the 19th Amendment, which granted women voting rights.

The film also delves into the deep divisions within the suffrage movement, like the one over whether to support voting rights for black men.
