Attention Bottom-of-the-Bay Feminists


This just arrived via a contact at The Te.ch Museum in San J0se:

Dear Friend,

Please join me for a unique film screening event to be held on Sunday afternoon, March 12, at the Te.ch Museum of In.novation. The acclaimed HBO film Iron-Jawed Angels documents the radical, determined heroines of the women's suffrage movement, who fought hard for the voting rights that we so often take for granted.

This event is a chance for us to come together in celebration of Women's History Month and to witness compelling portrayals of suffragists Alice Paul, Lucy Burns, and others on the difficult road to passage of the 19th amendment. Featuring stellar performances by Hilary Swank and Frances O'Connor, Iron-Jawed Angels premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2004 and earned Anjelica Huston a Golden Globe Award for her portrayal of activist Carrie Chapman Catt.

AT*T is generously co-sponsoring this film event. Thanks to AT*T, second Sundays are free at the Te.ch -- so come early and enjoy the museum, too!

Please pass on this message to anyone who might be interested. There is no charge for admission. The movie is appropriate for viewers twelve years old and older.

I hope to see you there!

--Assemblywoman Lieber


HBO showed the movie many times last year, and it is a must-see-- especially for those who think the suffragettes were all like the mother in Mary Poppins.
