Starring Hilary Swank, Frances O'Connor, Julia Ormond, and Anjelica Huston, Iron-Jawed Angels recounts the struggle of suffragists who fought for passage of the 19th amendment granting women the right to vote. Focusing on activists Alice Paul and Lucy Burns, this inspiring true story brings to life an important but neglected chapter of American history and shows how much women sacrificed to gain full citizenship.
