The year 2020 marks 100 years since the
passage of the 19th Amendment giving 26 million women the right to
vote. While it failed to enfranchise women of color, it was a huge step
towards equality. We Did It For You! Women's Journey Through History is the story of how women got their rights in America, told by the women who were there.
An entertaining and quick tour of
women's journey through history, starting with the struggle women had in
the 17th century Puritan Revolution through to our 21st century
empowered women politicians. Hear great speeches and listen to first
hand stories of why women persevered against so many obstacles so that
we can have our rights.

(played by Adrienne Williams) tells us why we must overcome the notion
that women need protection more than they need equality.
