IRON JAWED ANGELS is the true story of brilliant young activists Alice Paul and Lucy Burns who took the women’s suffrage movement by storm. Putting their lives at risk, they helped American women win the right to vote. The film stars Hilary Swank, Frances O’Connor, Molly Parker, Julia Ormond, Patrick Dempsey, Vera Farmiga and Anjelica Huston.
IRON JAWED ANGELS is written and directed by women and is a celebration of women’s achievements in both life and film. Click here for more information about the film.
WIFD is also supporting women in our community at this event by participating in the Mothers & More Mother’s Day Campaign 2011: Power of Purse. Attendees are asked to bring new or gently used purses to donate. Purses symbolize a woman’s economic power, something we wish for all women, especially mothers in need. More than an accessory, a purse and its contents reflect the many roles and responsibilities mothers shoulder every day.
Following the screening, WIFD will hold a brief Q&A to discuss the current state of women’s rights with notable advocates in our community. We hope Dallas/Ft Worth men and women join us for a night to celebrate all wives, mothers and daughters through entertainment and education! Check back for more information about our panelists.
