HIGHLIGHTS FROM DIVA - WOMEN'S RIGHTS DAY

It is interesting to think that just 94 years ago, on this day in 1920, women were finally granted the right to vote.  As such, the anniversary of this date is sometimes celebrated as Women's Rights Day.  Check out this video, made in 1972, that documents the celebration.  The women seen here are honoring the occasion by engaging in a "teach in," at which they provide an outlet for broader cultural, civil, and female-oriented groups to publicize their roles and actions in society.  It is interesting to note that many of the panel and discussion group topics emphasized in the video, such as female sexuality and equal rights amendments, are still important issues for both women specifically and society as a whole today.  Check out the video to get an interesting perspective on the progress of the Women's Movement.
