American Experience: The Vote, a new four-hour, two-part documentary series, tells the dramatic story of the epic — and surprisingly unfamiliar — crusade waged by American women for the right to vote. Focusing primarily on the movement’s final decade, the film charts American women’s determined march to the ballot box, and illuminates the myriad social, political and cultural obstacles that stood in their path.
The Vote delves into the controversies that divided the nation in the early 20th century — gender, race, state’s rights, and political power — and reveals the fractious dynamics of social change. Written, directed and produced by Emmy Award-winner Michelle Ferrari and executive produced by Susan Bellows and Mark Samels, The Vote premieres Monday and Tuesday, July 6-7, 2020, 8pm CST on TPT 2, TPT.org and the PBS Video App. Can’t wait?
