Ironed Jawed Angels

I am ashamed to say that I had never heard of the Ironed Jawed Angels until the HBO movie came up as a netflix suggestion. I do not know the actual story and order of events, but I think the movie did a great job illustrating the struggle and sacrifices our ancestors made to grant females the right to vote. If you haven't seen it, I recommend it! Thank you women suffragists!

As an aside, I've never liked Hilary Swank before, and I absolutely loved her in this film!

Now off to find a biography on Alice Paul and Lucy Burns to add to my "to be read" pile...
