Help Build a National Memorial Dedicated to American Suffragists

For 72 years women lobbied, paraded, met, and wrote giving voice to the movement to give women the right to vote.  Some endured brutal imprisonment.  

The Turning Point Suffragist Memorial Association in partnership with the US League, the Virginia League and the Fairfax League are raising funds to build a national memorial to the American suffragists.

Suffragette Movie Opening at Agelika in Mosaic District/Merrifield

This weekend's limited release showings of Suffragette will likely determine the national distribution for the film.  If the weekend's box office receipts are lackluster, the film will not stay in theaters very long.  

The movie tells the story of the British suffragette movement.  This is a story of empowerment that needs to be told, both the historical aspect and to create a connection to the tie-ins with today's lingering inequalities (pay gaps, under representation on boards, in elected office, etc.)

The all-female production team needs big box office receipts to assure the story is seen and heard across the country.

  • Angelika Film Center (Falls Church, VA)
  • ArcLight (Bethesda, MD)
  • E-Street Cinema (DC)
Other cities with showings include Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, San Francisco, and Phoenix.
