Alice Paul and Lucy Burns were two defiant suffragist women who fought for the passage of the 19th Amendment. The two activists broke from the mainstream women's rights movement and created a more radical wing, daring to push the boundaries to secure women's voting rights in 1920. In a country dominated by chauvinism, this is no easy fight. Along the way, sacrifices are made: Alice gives up a chance for love, and collegue Inez Mulholland gives up her life.

Wonderful movie! The story is amazing, but the modern twists (music, cinematography) weren't my style.

Really good movie :) I watched it in my literature class and I could not stop thinking about it for days after.

Great performances illuminate the hidden darkside of the harsh resistence to women's suffrage !! ,.. and of the the courage and committment of the unsung militants who persevered to victory.

This movie fell flat at times, but overall it portrayed beautifully the struggle for women's suffrage. A good performance by Hilary Swank.
