Documentary showing the history of the world-famous Statue of Liberty in New York harbor, the impact it still has on people and the state of liberty as a personal and political concept in America in 1985.
Superb documentary dealing with the lives of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. These 2 women were born into entirely different lives yet bonded for the work to be done to achieve women's equality.
We never realized how the work of Anthony and Stanton led to women owning property and the right to keep children when a divorce occurred.
Obviously, Stanton was much more of a fighter and militant than Anthony. The latter was certainly used for her organizational abilities and the fact that she had the time, since she never married and could go on speaking tours. Anthony did not want anything to come into the way that would prevent women from attaining suffrage. Too bad that these gallant women died without ever realizing their fulfilled dream of women's suffrage.
This excellent series makes you think if there were some sort of lesbian relationship between these 2 outstanding women.
