Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt talks on women's rights--outtakes

March is Women’s History Month, and these Fox Movietone News outtakes from August 1932 feature feminist Carrie Chapman Catt discussing the seventy-two year struggle for women’s suffrage. The long fight began with the 1848 convention at Seneca Falls, New York, and ended with the passing of the Nineteenth Amendment in August 1920, which finally gave women the hard-won right to vote in the United States. As she puts it, "woman suffrage is a long story of hard work and heartache, crowned by victory."

Carrie Chapman Catt followed pioneer Susan B. Anthony as President of the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA). She also founded the League of Women Voters, and co-founded the International Woman Suffrage Alliance (IWSA), now known as the International Alliance of Women.
