We are in Week 3 of the Focus Features special initiative, “19 Days of Suffrage,” to celebrate the powerful film Suffragette, as it releases in theaters nationwide through Thanksgiving. These 19 Days are in honor of the 19th Amendment, which granted women in the United States the right to vote in 1919.
Did you know that the U.S. Department of the Treasury is currently in the process of deciding which inspiring American woman will appear on the $10 bill in 2020. This week we would love for you to think about women through history who have inspired you, who you think would be a worthy candidate for #TheNew10? E.g. women’s rights leader Susan B. Anthony, civil rights activists Rosa Parks & Harriet Tubman, mental health rights activist Dorothea Dix, disability rights activist Helen Keller, etc.
