A Night At The Movies

To commemorate Women’s History Month, and more particularly on the 31st of March, the Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association presented the critically acclaimed movie, Suffragette. We were fortunate enough to partner with St. Francis College, permitting the film to be shown in their spacious auditorium. The story concerns itself with the fight for women’s suffrage in England. It takes place in 1912 and focuses on a few key figures. We become most intimately acquainted with Maud, a worker in a laundry, in charge of pressing collars. She is a reluctant participant in the fight for women to vote, at first, being encouraged by fate, more than her own volition. But as time goes by she is at the forefront of the movement. The story has many unexpected, heartbreaking turns, until its stark conclusion. The film serves as a reminder of the past and clearly illustrates that a group of determined women is irrepressible. Many members of the organization, as well as friends and relatives, were in attendance. A wonderful time was had by all.
