Not For Ourselves Alone

In the online women’s studies classes I teach, we are studying the suffrage movement through the work of Elizabeth Cady-Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. Women owe them a huge dept of gratitude! Not For Ourselves Alone is a wonderful PBS film that tells the entire story of how they paved the way for us all to have the vote. Hard to believe it’s been less than 100 years since we gained the vote! Knowing how difficult suffrage was to achieve, women will hopefully take every opportunity to cast their votes in elections!
