For Global Peace with Social Justice in a Sustainable Environment

I recently saw Iron Jawed Angels, an HBO film about Alice Paul and the second wave of suffragists that ultimately won the vote. While it was no Gandhi, it was a great dramatization of the politics of social justice that is easy to follow and raises some interesting perspectives about when to push, how hard to push and, again, what is courage in the moment of decision making.

I highly recommend it for both casual viewing as well as the classroom. Here's the preview:

I'll try to find this film, although I understand that Paul was quite conservative on non-feminist issues. Is that a misunderstanding?

Hello Gina,

Film sounds interesting, something to see and think on; perhaps I should try to find it in a local video store. Thank you for the recommendation...............
