The showboat Majestic at the Cincinnati Riverfront Public Landing
Two showings: 3:00 pm & 7:00 pm both with post-film discussions
An emotional and timely film, not shown in local theatres, IRON JAWED ANGELS is the story of how two feisty, smart, independent young women changed the course of American history.
Cincinnati World Cinema, the League of Women Voters and Women in Film Cincinnati present IRON JAWED ANGELS. Hilary Swank, Anjelica Huston, Julia Ormond & Frances O’Conner bring engaging, heartfelt performances to the true story of the lengthy struggle for American women’s right to vote.
Using contemporary music and modern cinematography, IRON JAWED ANGELS tells, in a way that is accessible and appealing to young and old alike, the little known story of how the Women’s Suffrage Movement overcame violence, imprisonment, divisive politics and an indifferent president to amend the U.S. Constitution, guaranteeing women the right to vote.
