Vote, The 4x60, 2x113

The Vote is the dramatic story of the fiery and unrelenting campaign to grant women the right to vote, a transformative cultural and political movement that resulted in the largest expansion of voting rights in U.S. history. In its final decade, from 1909 to 1920, the movement wrestled with contentious questions about the most effective methods for affecting social change, as leaders debated the use of militant, even violent tactics. The battle for the vote also upended previously accepted ideas about the role of women in American culture and society and challenged the definitions of citizenship and democracy. Exploring how and why millions of 20th-century Americans mobilized for—and against—women’s suffrage, The Vote brings to life the deep controversies over gender roles and race that divided Americans—and continue to dominate political discourse today.
