Come to Ames Public Library for a free showing of Iron Jawed Angels (2004). Karen Kendrowski, Director of the Carrie Chapmann Catt Center, will introduce the film and lead a brief discussion following the film.

This film focuses on the American women’s suffrage movement during the 1910s and follows women’s suffrage leaders Alice Paul and Lucy Burns as they use peaceful and effective nonviolent strategies, tactics, and dialogues to revolutionize the American feminist movement to grant women the right to vote.
