The 100 anniversary of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote is in 2020. In recognition of the struggle for women’s vote the Department of History, Sociology, Anthropology and Cross-Disciplinary Studies with the financial support of Missouri Humanities Council is sponsoring the “Centennial of Women’s Suffrage Speaker and Event Series.”
Two free movie showings at the Union Cinema are part of this series. On Tuesday, March 6th at 11:00 am and again at 5:00 p.m. the movie Suffragette will be shown. On Tuesday, March 13th at 11:00 and again at 5:00 the movie Iron Jawed Angels will be shown. A brief panel discussion will follow the 5:00 showings of both films.
This is a free event!
