In August 2020, the U.S. celebrated the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote. “These Things Can Be Done,” a documentary that explores the often-overlooked narrative of women’s suffrage in Virginia, premiered on VPM on August 13, 2020. Meet the historians featured in the film, who share their insights on this pivotal moment in Virginia’s history and answered audience questions as part of this virtual discussion.
