Clarksville, TN – This weekend, celebrate the women around the world who have fought and continue to fight against the gender inequalities and inequities that still permeate today’s society. Get Back to the Movies at the Roxy Regional Theatre with the inspirational historical drama “Suffragette” this Friday, April 30th, at 7:00pm.
Side note: Before you head into the movie, be sure to stop by Public Square and check out Clarksville’s own women’s suffrage monument, Tennessee Triumph, honoring those who fought for women’s voting rights and passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.
Academy Award nominees Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter and three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep star in this powerful drama, inspired by true events, about the women willing to lose everything in their fight for equality in early 20th-century Britain. Galvanized by political activist Emmeline (Meryl Streep), Maud (Carey Mulligan) joins the growing suffragette movement alongside women from all walks of life who sacrificed their jobs, homes, children — and even their lives — for the right to vote.
