On August 7, 2020, the Commission held a watch party on Youtube of the remastered PBS documentary One Woman, One Vote in partnership with the nonprofit 2020 One Woman One Vote Festival.

Over 200+ viewers tuned in live for the screening. One Woman, One Vote documents the struggle that culminated in the passage of the 19th Amendment and the decades-long fight for women’s suffrage. The special 25th anniversary version of the documentary features an introduction by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Actress and comedian Retta, a co-host of the Commission’s podcast And Nothing Less: The Untold Stories of Women’s Fight for the Vote, also made a special appearance during the watch party.

The Commission was thrilled to partner with the One Woman, One Vote Film Festival to bring this timeless documentary straight to people’s homes through this virtual screening. The 25th-anniversary edition of the film features a special introduction by the inimitable Justice Ginsburg, and it was an honor to bring her powerful words to Americans across the country. We were also proud to be joined by Retta, who has been a wonderful partner to the Commission and a passionate advocate for suffrage history throughout the centennial.
