Iron Jawed Angels

I had previously seen the movie Iron Jawed  Angels but decided to watch it again in class. I thought it was interesting from a feminist perspective to make a movie about women’s suffrage while interspersing this weird love story between the protaginist female character and some random newspaper editor.  I was also a bit offended by the fact that there were very few positive male characters in the movie. I know the point was to stress women’s roles in bringingabout suffrage but we also discussed after that men did play an important, and somewhat prominent, role in bringing suffrage to fruition. Maybe it was more of a screenplay decision, not wanting to overload the viewer with too many characters or something, but i thought they could have put a few in.
