COURAGE IN CORSETS: WINNING THE

VOTE IN WASHINGTON STATE

In November 1910, the voters of Washington State - all men at the time - voted overwhelmingly to give women the right to vote. The results of this election resonated across the country, rekindling the fire of earlier suffrage efforts and paving the way for other states to follow. For the next decade, this “awakening” took hold, state by state, until the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified. After a 70-year struggle, American women finally had the right to vote. Courage in Corsets is the story of the women whose personal courage, political savvy and sheer tenacity won the vote for all women in Washington. Produced, written and edited by Mary DeCesare, directed by Jim Zimmer and art directed by Michael Dixon, Courage in Corsets is a one hour KSPS Public Television documentary on this fascinating time in history. Awards: Northwest Emmy Nomination, International Telly Award.
