An Outstanding Presentation of the Lives of Two Magnificent Women
8 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

This presentation of two, extraordinary women was captivating, informative, and wonderful. Every citizen should watch this biography of two women.

How many of us would be able to stay with a cause for 50 years? It took a special kind of courage to persevere in the face of ridicule, rejection, and broken promises. To remain friends for 50 years in spite of differences is something few people in this world can accomplish.

How sad both women, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, did not live to see their dream achieved. The women of this nation owe so much to these two women and the women who supported them.

A heart-rending end for two women who gave so much to the women of this country. This biography should be shown in all the schools of this land. They, Anthony and Stanton, should never be forgotten for their sacrifices made in the quest for equal rights for women. Again, an A-1 production.
