Join PBS KVIE for an online preview screening of the new documentary The Vote, followed by a panel discussion.
One hundred years after the passage of the 19th Amendment, The Vote tells the dramatic culmination story of the hard-fought campaign waged by American women for the right to vote – a transformative cultural and political movement that resulted in the largest expansion of voting rights in U.S. history.
Explore how and why millions of 20th-century Americans mobilized for – and against – women’s suffrage, meet the unsung leaders of the movement, and examine the deep controversies over gender roles and race that divided Americans then – and continue to dominate political discourse today. American Experience: The Vote airs in two parts on PBS KVIE on July 6 & 7 at 9PM, and premieres on the PBS Video app at the same time.
Broadcasting from California’s capital since 1959, PBS KVIE inspires viewers to explore the world and connect with their community through engaging experiences in current events, drama, history, nature, science, and more. For the 17th consecutive year, PBS is the most trusted institution in America (based on a nationwide survey). And as a member station of PBS, we air national shows like NOVA, PBS NewsHour, and MASTERPIECE and tell local stories with shows like Rob on the Road, Studio Sacramento, and ViewFinder.
Support from our community makes programs and screening events like this possible. Please consider making a donation in support of PBS KVIE. Thank you!
Thank you to the sponsors of The Vote screening and panel discussion: Five Star Bank and Kaiser Permanente.
