Local Republican women to host movie about women’s suffrage movement

OSAGE CITY, Kan. – The Osage County Republican Women will host a free movie at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 28, 2018, at the Osage City Public Library Annex, 515 Main St. The movie, originally shown on the HBO television network, highlights the conflict that occurred when women sought to gain the right to vote in America.

This historical account of women’s suffrage is rated ’14’ and stars Hillary Swank (portraying Alice Paul, a leader of the women’s suffrage movement), Angelica Huston and Patrick Dempsey. The movie vividly recounts the struggle in the early 1900s of the brave women who single-handedly fought to secure U.S. constitutional voting rights for future generations of women. Up until that time, women had no vote, no political clout, and few rights as American citizens. It features the inspirational story of women who were determined to make a stand for women’s rights and were successful in changing the voting status of women in America.

Movie concessions at the site will be sold by 4-H members participating in the Citizenship Washington Focus Program. Area high school government class students will be assisting with the program.

Admission is free with a complimentary ticket. Youth ages 14 and older and adults are welcome to attend. Complimentary tickets are available in Burlingame, Carbondale, Lyndon, Osage City and Overbrook. For ticket location information, call Sue Anderson, OCRW secretary, at 785-836-7621.
