I had no idea women had the right to vote in NJ in the late 18th century!

I knew a little about that aspect of NJ history, but not in detail. The reasons behind the revocation are fascinating...and dismaying!

Would it be possible to screen the film for other audiences? I’m thinking Girl Scouts, faith communities, etc.

Most of the songs sound "Gospel" or "Choir"-as this considered a Christian movement at the time? Since foreigners and African Americans may hve had other religious/spiritual practices. I also remember a parody of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic". Women sang "I will aim, and shoot, and bayonet, I will March and kill and die, I just can't go into Battle yet, my hair is not completely dry". (Women in the Military). From Mad Magazine

I like singers like The Cranberries where the lead sings about the atrocities of war-she sings about the Irish factions fighyting for 100s if not 100s of years. Or a play like Medea, where things get so bad she kills her own children rather than let them kive in the world (a bit of Debbie Downer there). I also like women who celebrate there feminity-the 3 Sarahs this year: First Female football kicker, First Superbowl Ref, First Transgender Senator (DE)

My daughter says we should listen to "Big Sis Energy", its on Spotify-adding to Meliisa's idea whatbif we created a spotify contemporary playlist for ERA or other?

K Lamar sings about police brutality/BL< but does acknowledge he was in a gang and did violence in his youth. He also has a song that is NOT flattering to woman but I would rather listen and respond calmly then ignore , especially if he has a big audience or is influential to our youth, boys and girls, sons and daughters
