The Hard-Fought Campaign

PBS’s American Experience brings viewers an intimate look at the women who forever transformed the politics of social and political change in America. Exploring how and why millions of 20th-century Americans mobilized for—and against—women’s suffrage, The Vote, which aired on July 7, 2020, brings to life the unsung leaders of the movement and the deep controversies over gender roles and race that divided Americans then—and continue to dominate political discourse today. Students can celebrate the strategies and tactics of suffrage with She Resisted, an interactive experience that explores the final decade of the women’s suffrage movement through its most powerful images. They can live through the epic 1913 Washington, DC, procession, in which thousands of women took to the streets to demand their right to the franchise; thrill at Ida B. Wells’s successful voter registration drive; and admire suffragists’ commitment to nonviolent resistance, which included going on hunger strikes and withstanding brutal force feedings.
