ONE WOMAN, ONE VOTE (VOD)OneWomanOneVote

The challenging 72-year battle that finally won the constitutional right to vote for American women is portrayed in this engaging two-hour PBS special. The program premiered originally on "The American Experience" in 1995 and enjoyed broad national use in America's colleges and universities. The New York Times television critic wrote:

"Inspiring without being rhapsodic. It tells as much about American Politics as about the heroism of American women."

Viewers who purchased the original version in the series "The American Experience" wrote:

The documentary features suffrage movement leaders from Elizabeth Cady Stanton , Susan B. Anthony, and Sojourner Truth in the19th century to Carrie Catt and the militant Alice Paul in the 20th century. Narrated by Susan Sarandon, "One Woman. One Vote" features the voices of Richard Kiley, Amy Irving, Pat Carroll and Frances Sternhagen.

A PLACE CALLED JUSTICE (VOD)

A Place Called Justice celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which guaranteed the right to vote to every elegible American citizen. A right denied to many thousands of African Americans because of race. It was a hard fight. And many dedicated themselves to the cause. But a few were as critical to developing the 1965 Voting Rights Act as the fearless group of men and women at the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. Without their tireless efforts, the Voting Rights Act would not have been passed. And their story has never been told. This one hour PBS Television Special with broad transmedia outreach community is a clarion call to Americans to resume the fight to protect our democratic right to vote made necessary by a 2013 Supreme Court decision declaring sections of the Voting Rights Act unconsitutional.
