Movie:  The Vote for Women

Produced and directed by our LWVQAC President, Dr. Patricia Jamison, and QACTV Station Manager George Harvey, this YouTube video includes our own Founding Board Members Mary Campbell and Joyce Woodford. Mary and Joyce relate personal experiences of their ancestors in the fight for Voter Rights for Women!

This is the story of the role of the suffragettes in the passing of the 19th Amendment and the founding of the League of Women Voters (LWV), as told through stories of women whose ancestors had to struggle for voting rights. The public needs to be reminded of what the suffragettes fought for and why the LWV was founded, to ensure that voters are informed when they go to the polls to vote. Empowering voters defends democracy and democracy is worth fighting for!
