Join Lakewood League of Women Voters for a screening of Iron Jawed Angels. American suffragette Alice Paul (Hilary Swank) takes her advocacy to Washington, D.C. to fight for the right to vote. When President Wilson refuses, Paul shows how far she is willing to go for the cause. While challenging the ideology of patriarchy, the film showcases democracy and exhibits white privilege. The film will be followed by a discussion.
