When women and girls hold equal and active roles in society, communities and countries thrive. As Americans recognize the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing (some) women the right to vote in the United States, the Bush Center’s Women’s Initiative curated a list of films for adults celebrating this important milestone and the incredible contributions of women and girls to our world. These include titles depicting the decades-long pursuit for suffrage in this country and around the globe, the continued push for gender equality across the last century, and the hard work that still remains to assure a more equal and inclusive future for all.
