March 30: Join the ACLU of Nevada for 'A Single Woman' at UNR
Jeanette Rankin, the first female member of the United States Congress and co-founder of the American Civil Liberties Union, was a woman ahead of her time. As a suffragist and an advocate for peace in the first half of the 20th century, Rankin’s adherence to her deepest convictions despite political and social opposition serves as an inspiring example for contemporary activists and concerned citizens.
Please join us for a screening of A Single Woman, a film adaptation of the stage play that tells Rankin’s story.

“The world doesn’t need many of the biographical films that come my way, but this looks to be an exception. Jeanette Rankin is an extraordinary subject, and the prospect of a film that honors the sweep of her life is instantly intriguing.”
--Joe Morgenstern, Pulitzer Prize-winning Film Critic for The Wall Street Journal
