Hard to believe there was ever a time that women couldn't vote in Ireland, but in fact it was less than a 100 years ago, and it happened all thanks to the Irish suffragettes. This doc tell the story of their bravery in the face of ignorance, indifference and hostility. Hannah Sheehy Skeffington founded the largest of the Irish suffrage movements who were called the Irish Women's Franchise League. Through their hard work and long campaigns, women were given the right to vote in 1918. At that point though, it was only for women over thirty who owned land, but the suffragettes fought to have it rectified again, and in 1922 all women over 21 were given the right to vote. Great doc that manages to do justice to the inspirational story it tells.
