Suffragette

Date/Time:       11/20/2015       12:00 am

Location: Celebration North

Friday, November 20, Celebration North, $10–time, theater number, and ticketing details TBA: Come to the Grand Rapids opening of the star-studded British film Suffragette. GGRWHC will rent our own small theater, where afterwards we will talk with GVSU women’s historian Gretchen Galbraith about fact and fiction in the film itself, when the early British and American women’s movements intersected, and how they were different. No longer will you confuse British “suffragettes” with American “suffragists”! In a cameo performance Meryl Streep appears as British suffrage leader Emmeline Pankhurst, while Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter play foot soldiers in the movement.
