HOW LONG MUST WE WAIT (Doc) BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE – A historical doc about the 72-year battle that women fought to achieve the right to vote in the US, it focuses on the events in 1917 that led to the imprisonment and brutal treatment of suffragists in a prison in Lorton, Virginia. Considered a turning point in the suffrage campaign, it helped turn the public tide and ultimately led to the passage of the 19th amendment in 1920. While that was a huge victory, the film also focuses on the fact that there is still much work left to be done in the fight for women's equal rights.
