A Documentary Screening and Q&A with the Justice Bell Foundation
Online via Zoom; Registration required at wvpljusticebell.eventbrite.com
Join us for a screening of the short documentary film Finding Justice: The Untold Story of Women’s Fight for the Vote followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker and Executive Director of the Justice Bell Foundation, Amanda Owen. (FILM TIME: 19 minutes, followed by Q&A).
Part present-day detective story and part historical account of the movement for voting rights, Finding Justice tells the story of a band of intrepid women and their one-ton bronze bell that became a celebrated icon of the women's suffrage movement. The creation of suffragists in Pennsylvania who were agitating for the right to vote, the Justice Bell helped rally support around the cause in the last crucial years leading up to the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment.
Filmmaker Amanda Owen is the Executive Director of the Justice Bell Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to reclaim women’s history, highlight women’s contributions, and to honor the Justice Bell and its historic role in the American struggle for women’s suffrage and equal rights.
