The Vote (2020) Rated PG

The vote chronicles the campaign for women’s right to vote. Starring Kate Burton, Audra McDonald, Laura Linney, Patricia Clarkson, and Mae Whitman.

This year marks the one-hundredth year since the ratification of the 19th Amendment for women’s right to vote. The series follows the women who fought hard for this right. It takes us through the controversies that still plague the States but also what these women were up against when seeking this right. It covers the race issues with all women, including black women, fighting for their right. The series also looks at the gender issue and how this would change the way men looked at women. We also look at the State’s rights on whether or not to pass the Amendment and how political power played into that. It’s a part of history that I don’t think about, but every election, I exercise my right to vote. I’ve never had to deal with issues of people thinking I’m not smart enough to know and understand whom I want in office, but women a hundred years ago went up against men thinking just that. I’m thankful for their forthright, although I’m not sure if I would have been one of the women fighting or one still thinking the voting booth wasn’t my place. This series is interesting and worth a watch.
