Seneca Falls, NY -Women's Rights National Historical Park is pleased to announce that it will show the PBS documentary One Woman, One Vote  this Friday and Saturday, March 9 and 10, at 12 p.m.

One Woman, One Vote  documents the more than 70-year struggle for women's right to vote in America.  Beginning with the First Women's Rights Convention that was held in Seneca Falls in 1848, the film explores how the suffrage movement unfolded and identifies the challenges women faced in their demand for equal rights.  

The film is being shown as part of Women's Rights National Historical Park's first Winter Film Festival.  The park exists to commemorate and preserve the events of the First Women's Rights Convention that was held in Seneca Falls in 1848.  "We are proud to be part of the National Park system, and we invite everyone to join us in celebrating our shared history and culture through film," said Superintendent Tammy Duchesne.

The park is also showing the film as part of its celebration of Women's History Month in March.  "We are inspired by the courage of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, and countless other women and men who struggled for equal rights in this country," said Duchesne.  "Their stories continue to resonate with people across the globe."

One Woman, One Vote is approximately 2 hours long and intended for a general audience.  All Winter Film Festival movies will be shown at 12 p.m. on Fridays and  Saturdays, November through April, in the Guntzel Theater, located at the Women's Rights National Historical Park Visitor Center at 136 Fall Street in downtown Seneca Falls.  Because film lengths vary, visitors are encouraged to call if they are interested in a particular showing.  All park programs are free and open to the public.  For more information, call 315.568.0024.You can also follow the park's social media sites for Facebook ( http://www.facebook.com/womensrightsnps ) and Twitter ( http://twitter.com/#!/WomensRightsNPS ) to learn more about our upcoming events and programs.
