The first trailer for the movie Suffragette came out today and I am so incredibly excited for this movie. While the movie is focused around the suffrage movement in Britain, it’s been almost 100 years since women in America have been able to vote. It’s something you don’t think about because voting is just something you have the right to do. (Even though most people don’t actually go and do it.)
Though as we enter the election season to elect the next president of the United States, there is a very good chance we as Americans will be electing the first ever female president. That is something I’m sure the suffragettes imagined but never knew possible.
I’m extremely excited for the movie as well as the events of the upcoming election.
