The 19th Amendment

Production of a four-hour documentary film about the efforts to pass the Nineteenth Amendment for women’s voting rights (1909–20).

The 19th Amendment is a new two-part, four-hour film about the final phase of the struggle for the Nineteenth Amendment (1909-1920), which removed discrimination at the polls on the basis of sex, and led to the largest expansion of voting rights in American history. The film is planned for broadcast in 2020, and has the opportunity to provide important engagement, broad educational outreach, and critical discussion for the Amendment’s centennial. The film explores the culmination story—as well as the stark limitations—of one of the nation’s most important social, political, and cultural movements. It addresses broad themes about the nature of American democracy, the relationship between the franchise and civic identity, the shape of social movements, the influence of transnational exchange and global politics, and the role of race and gender in public life.
