Hilary Swank stars in this TV biopic about Alice Paul, the American feminist who founded the National Women's Party and risked her life in the fight for women's citizenship and their right to vote. The hunger strike undertaken by Paul and her co-activists became well-publicised across America, earning the women the collective title 'the iron-jawed angels', and culminated in the passing of the 19th amendment to the United States Constitution in 1920, which finally gave women the vote. Premiered at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival, this thought-provoking historical drama depicts the real sacrifices made by the women to fight for the basic civil rights that tend to be taken for granted today.
