A new film now airing on public television, and available for distribution and program presentations
Votes for Women: The History of Women’s Suffrage Through Song, tells the story of the women's suffrage movement through historical segments narrated by Nancy Giles and illustrated with archival images and video from the Library of Congress, the National Archives and other sources. These segments appear between songs from or about the suffrage movement performed by Women in Harmony, a social justice chorus from Portland, Maine, performed in concert in January of 2020 in recognition of the centennial of the ratification of the 19th amendment giving women the constitutional right to vote.
