The suffragists“IRON JAWED ANGELS”

The suffrage movement was about women’s right to vote and

about challenging Victorian traditions and ideology of “proper” place, modernizing, and

occupying a new place in the public domain.

IRON JAWED ANGELS recounts for the struggle of suffragists who fought for the passage of the

AMENDMENT XIXPassed by Congress June 4, 1919. Ratified August 18, 1920.

The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

Two defiant women, Alice Paul and Lucy Burns show how these activists broke from the mainstream women's-rights movement and created a more radical wing, to push the boundaries of political protest to secure women's voting rights in 1920.

The film tells the true story of Paul, Burns and others.

Although the protagonists have different personalities and backgrounds they are united in their fierce devotion to women's suffrage.

The women were thrown in jail, and then went on a hunger strike making headline news. The women's resistance to being force-fed earns them the nickname "The Iron Jawed Angels." Some people spoke out in favour of the vote and a large number spoke out against forcible feeding. However, it is truly their wills that are made of iron, and their courage inspires a nation and changes it forever.
