These Things Can Be Done
This month the U.S. will celebrate the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote. “These Things Can Be Done,” a new documentary that explores the often-overlooked narrative of women’s suffrage in Virginia, premieres on VPM on August 13. Learn more about the film and watch the trailer at SuffrageFilm.com.
Watch the premiere, then join the historians featured in the film the following day in a live panel discussion. They will share their insights on this pivotal moment in Virginia’s history and take your questions as part of this virtual discussion.
