"19 Days of Suffrage" : The Right to Vote, Women in Government; Election Day #Suffragette @suffragetteMOV + a #Giveaway #ad

Academy Award nominees Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter, and three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep, lead the cast of a powerful drama about the women who were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality in early-20th-century Britain. The stirring story centers on Maud (played by Carey Mulligan), a working wife and mother whose life is forever changed when she is secretly recruited to join the U.K.’s growing suffragette movement. Galvanized by the outlaw fugitive Emmeline Pankhurst (Meryl Streep), Maud becomes an activist for the cause alongside women from all walks of life. When increasingly aggressive police action forces Maud and her dedicated fellow suffragettes underground, they engage in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse with the authorities, who are shocked as the women’s civil disobedience escalates and sparks debate across the nation. Inspired by true events, “Suffragette” is a moving drama exploring the passion and heartbreak of those who risked all they had for women’s right to vote – their jobs, their homes, their children, and even their lives. The film also stars Ben Whishaw, Anne-Marie Duff, Brendan Gleeson, Romola Garai, and Natalie Press. “Suffragette” is directed by BAFTA Award winner Sarah Gavron from an original screenplay by Abi Morgan

 Suffragette opened last Friday in LA & NY and will continue to open across the country through Thanksgiving.  "19 Days of Suffrage" is in honor of the 19th Amendment, which granted women in the United States the right to vote in 1919.

This week is The Right to Vote, Women in Government; Election Day.  Tomorrow is voting day and as a woman, I look forward to this day.  It is a day that our voices matter, we are equal.  No one looks down on us based on our vote, opinions, etc.  

I remember when I turned 18 in October and was able to vote that November.  I excitedly went to the hall that was my voting region and went and got in the long line and waited for my chance to vote.  This was the older stand alone boxes with the curtains and it was a non-computerized voting center.  The thrill and the excitement of my voice being heard was amazing.  Now that I am a mom, I make sure my kids go with me to vote.  This way they can see how important it is for everyone's voices to be heard!
