Contact: John Stoudt, 315.568.0024
Women's Rights National Historical Park continues its second annual Winter Film Festival by showing the documentary film One Woman, One Vote on Friday, March 1, and Saturday, March 2, 2013.
One Woman, One Vote documents the 72-year struggle for women's right to vote in America. The film explores how the suffrage movement unfolded and identifies the challenges women faced in their demand for equal rights. The running time of One Woman, One Vote is 106 minutes.
Women's Rights National Historical Park commemorates and preserves the sites associated with the First Women's Rights Convention, held in 1848 in Seneca Falls. "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 Winter Film Festival is a great way to learn more about our nation's history," added Superintendent 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."
All Winter Film Festival showings will occur at 12:00 Noon on Fridays and Saturdays at the Women's Rights National Historical Park Visitor Center, located at 136 Fall Street in Seneca Falls. All film showings are free of charge. The Winter Film Festival films are intended for a general audience. Visitors are encouraged to call if they are interested in a particular showing as film lengths vary.
