A powerful story comes to the movies this Fall. Suffragette offers a window into the fierce determination of the brave women, who struggled for and won the vote for their gender in Victorian England.  Meryl  Streep stars as British Suffragette leader, Emmeline Pankhurst. We remember and honor the  women in America, Britain, and elsewhere,  who fought the battle that gave women the vote in those places. Their strength and determination paved the way to the nearer to equal status women in economically advanced nations have attained in post-20th century life. There is a way we can show respect for women who stood so dramatically in the 19th, and early part of the 20th century.   Suffrugette, the movie, will come to theaters this Fall.  Support this rare movie that truly evokes the courage and sacrifice of women. Suffragette movie trailer… Historical Perspective… The world was not kind to women in the 19th century and before.  Genuine equality remains an elusive goal.  In some parts of the world, women continue be oppressed by cultural precedent.  In too many places, females are still considered a man’s property, with no access to education, or any kind of reproductive choice. Suffragette is only one story of courageous women engaged in a struggle for a better life for themselves and their daughters.  We want  to see movies about the struggles of Elisabeth Cady Stanton, Sojourner Truth,  Susan B. Anthony, and Margaret Sanger to name a few. Over the last two centuries, there are so many great stories of radical feminist warriors  standing bravely against  the cultural tyranny oppressing them. If we want to see more movies about great women who inspire, please make a note. Look for the theatrical release of Suffragette in October .  When it comes to your town,  go to the theater, buy a ticket, and be motivated.
