Tonight, I watched Iron Jawed Angels.

My friend Jen brought this over to the "Palm House" when I lived there with Elisa back in the day. It sat on on top of our television for months, but we never found the time to watch it.

I watched it tonight and it blew me away.

Thank you Jen, for introducing it to me all those years ago, and letting us keep it unwatched for all of those months.

Its part of the story about how women fought for the right to vote. I think everyone in America should watch it.

Teachers, it would be fabulous to show in your class room (there is one scene you will need to fast forward through, so screen it first).

I'm all pumped up and ready to go.

That is such a great movie! I watched it about a year ago. It's amazing what those women went through to help us get the right to vote. Heather M.

Thanks for the movie tip. I'll try to check it out. There are stories like these littered throughout our history, and sometimes I forget what many people did before me to afford me and my brothers and sisters the freedoms we have today. Thanks!
