Running Time: 27 minutes

History comes to life as dramatic recreations of the First Women’s Rights Convention held in Seneca Falls in 1848 and other historical events are combined with contemporary segments in which young people engage in candid exchanges about the contemporary roles of men and women.

Early Feminist leaders like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Frederick Douglas are highlighted.

Issues of political equity, traditional women’s roles, marital finances and educational opportunities for girls are still relevant today – almost 160 years later.


“… a lively, unique and thought-provoking look at the movement that has affected us all. The live-action, archival stills, and lively discussions combine to show how the historical events depicted affect real people, and how they are still relevant today.” – School Library Journal
