In this election year, we are hearing a lot about people voting in primaries and taking part in the political process. But "back in the day", women had to fight for equal rights.

The Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum, 503 South Street, will be screening "Iron Jawed Angels" in the Museum’s Theatre on Saturday, March 7 & the 28 at 10AM and 2PM.
