NIC celebrates Women's History Month with film presentation

In honor of Women's History Month, North Idaho College is presenting “Iron Jawed Angels,” a film about women's suffrage, at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 10. The film recounts the struggle of suffragists who fought for the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Focusing on two defiant women Alice Paul, played by Hilary Swank, and Lucy Burns, played by Frances O'Connor, the film details how the two broke away from the mainstream women's rights movement to create a more radical wing, pushing the boundaries of political protest to secure women's voting rights in 1920. The film will be shown in Todd Lecture Hall of Molstead Library on NIC's main campus. It is free and open to the public. The event is sponsored by NIC's Diversity Events Committee. Information: (208) 769-3397.
