On November 3, 2020, local filmmakers at five New York cemeteries in Rochester, the Bronx, Auburn, Buffalo, and Sleepy Hollow interviewed visitors about why they chose to honor the suffragists buried there, their reasons for voting, and their vision for the country. Their perspectives capture the excitement and concern present during a historic election year and spotlight the need for respectful civil discourse to unite a divided nation. WOMEN AND THE VOTE interweaves these present-day interviews with rich historical elements to generate connections between New York's suffragist legacy and contemporary voters. Archival footage and images of early suffragist marches and pickets combine with voice actor readings of speeches and writings to help bridge the past and present. Through these elements, the hour-long documentary presents a mosaic of the past 100 years of women's political equality, the present moment, and the future.
