"A Single Woman" (2008) is the story of the United States’s first congresswoman, Jeannette Rankin. Twice elected to represent Montana, in 1916 and 1940, Rankin twice lost her seat for voting against this country’s entry into world wars. Her portrait is on display in the exhibition “Women of Our Time: Twentieth-Century Photographs.”
A conversation with the film’s director, Kamala Lopez, and “Women of Our Time” curator Ann Shumard will follow the screening. Free and open to the public; no tickets required. Doors open at 2:30; seating is first come, first served. The event is located in the museum's Nan Tucker McEvoy Auditorium.
