Hear My Voice

A Story of Women's Suffrage presented by Living Voices

Join Living Voices for an event that combines dynamic solo performances with archival film and sound, turning history into a moving and personal journey.

The Story

Jessie is the daughter of a political columnist from Tennessee, growing up in Washington, DC during the early 1900s with dreams of being as important to her father as her younger brother is. When her great-aunt Charlotte, a longtime
suffragist, comes to Washington, she introduces Jessie to the movement. Jessie begins to learn about the history of the women who started the movement, such as Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the new generation who have continued the fight, like Alice Paul and Lucy Burns--and those who oppose it, including her own parents. Despite their objections, Jessie soon becomes deeply involved in the suffrage movement, comparing their fight for democracy to the one her brother Will stands for when he goes overseas as a soldier in World War I. As tragedy strikes both at home and abroad and the battle for the vote continues to escalate, everyone in Jessie's family must face their own decisions about what they believe is right and the actions they are willing to take on this pivotal issue.
