#HopeForOurDaughters made its debut with an attention-grabbing, if not soul-crushing, video. In a studio setting, girls holding cards that say 1915 and 2015 are given a sad statistic about the female experience and asked if they think that’s how the world was 100 years ago or how it is today.

The result is that the viewer sees the young girls’ crest-fallen faces as they find out about illiteracy, child labor, and poverty. As one girl sadly puts it, “we are equal, but, for some weird reason, we’re not seen that way.”

Watch the video below and post a photo on Instagram holding up a sign that says your hope for the future. Use the hashtag #HopeForOurDaughters, and for every post, $1 will be donated to Equality Now.

Suffragette

This movie lets us see how the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State.

Storyline

A drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality – their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. Maud was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, it is also heart-breaking and inspirational. (thanks to IMDB)
