Iron-Jawed-AngelsHow far would you go to fight for your democracy?

In 1912 Philadelphia, young suffragist activists Alice Paul (Hilary Swank) and Lucy Burns (Frances O'Connor) take the reins of the National American Women's Suffrage Association's (NAWSA) committee in Washington D.C. where they organize a landmark parade on President Wilson's inauguration day. The march is violently disrupted by men on the sidelines. Many more ordeals follow, including opposition from the more conservative NAWSA old guard (led by deliciously persnickety Anjelica Huston), and grisly sentences as political prisoners.

Held on May 31, 2012, at 6:00 pm, this movie will be screened at the Valparaiso Public Library.

This event is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Indiana, Porter County unit.
