WOMEN MAKING HISTORY
After a year defined by sexual assault allegations and following Brett Kavanaugh's narrow confirmation to the Supreme Court, it's become clear that women will be driving the midterm elections, both as mobilized voters and first-time candidates. In 2018, women are running for elected office in historic and never-before-seen numbers- and they are winning.

It took 150 years for women in this country to earn the right to vote, and decades more for black women to overcome the racist policies that prevented them from voting. On the eve of election day, we invite you to explore the films below that highlight the inspiring achievements of pioneers who changed history as well as the courageous women who continue to fight for progress and pave the way for future leaders.
