In Boulder's Daily Camera and Denver's 9News obtained the crime scene DNA report and their undisputed analysis found that in two of the three DNA specimens, the "a 3rd person's genetic markers" were present.
TWM is proud to announce that it has acquired the rights to interviews of two women who participated in the Suffrage Movement: Giving students the opportunity to read firsthand accounts of what life was like for girls and women in the late 19th and early 20th centuries will be an excellent supplement to any American History class.
The files containing the interviews are large and take a few minutes to load. Students may also want to read Conversations with Alice Paul: After aboutfrustrated by the failure of the United States to adopt a constitutional amendment giving women the vote, militant suffragists led by Alice Paul mount an aggressive campaign demanding suffrage.
They use parades and demonstrations with striking visual messages, they campaign against the Democratic party which refuses to endorse the Amendment, and they picket the White House.
The demonstrations are entirely peaceful and their banners often use the words of Woodrow Wilson, who was president at the time, to argue the justice of their cause.
However, Alice Paul and her militant suffragists refuse, noting that they had not been permitted to participate in making the decision on whether or not to go to war. They also point to the hypocrisy of a nation that says it is fighting a war to "make the world safe for democracy" while it refuses to allow the vast majority of its female citizens to vote.
The response is violent.
Angry crowds assault the protesters and the police do little or nothing to protect the women. Instead, the suffragists are arrested on false charges of blocking the sidewalk, convicted without due process of law, and sent to jail. In jail, they are confined in poor conditions and given rancid, wormy food.
Their claim to be treated as political prisoners is rejected. Other female inmates are incited by the guards to attack them. When some of the women protest their mistreatment, they are placed in solitary confinement. The suffragists then go on hunger strikes but are brutally force-fed by the jailors.
The government unsuccessfully tries to have their leader, Alice Paul, declared insane so that she could be committed to an asylum indefinitely. The public outcry is immense and adds to the pressure on President Wilson to propose the 19th Amendment, giving women the vote.
And almost every scene of this part of the movie, is true and reasonably accurate. The suffragists were applying all of the principles of nonviolent mass action: This movie can be used to vividly impress upon students the following important historical lessons not generally taught in textbooks: Carrie Chapman Catt, were probably more important long term factors in passing the amendment; and 5 Alice Paul and the NWP independently developed tactics of nonviolent protest which were strikingly similar to the methods of promoting political and social change being developed at about the same time by Mahatma Gandhi.
The others were the grant of equal treatment for black Americans and other minorities, the procedural protections given to persons accused of crimes achieved primarily through court decisionsgranting access and other rights to the disabled achieved through legislation and the grant of equal rights to homosexuals, including the right to raise children and to marry.
All these advances are works in process.
The romantic interlude and the characterization of Carrie Chapman Catt are incorrect. See the Helpful Background Section. These problems can be briefly corrected and turned into strengths by discussing them. Correct the historical errors by stating that while Alice Paul and her militants played an important role in getting the vote for women, Mrs.
Catt and her organization probably deserves more of the credit. Certainly, they deserve more credit than they were given in the movie.
In addition, not shown in the movie is the fact that once President Wilson was converted to the suffragist side, he worked actively to get the 19th Amendment passed in Congress and ratified by the states. His political intervention was crucial in the success of the campaign to pass the amendment.
Children are often interested in specific scenes that are accurate portrayals of real events. For an extensive list see, Dramatization of Incidents that Actually Occurred.T he year turned out to be somewhat of a rejuvenation after the comparatively weak offerings of Although Korean films did not win any major awards from top-ranked festivals in , as they had the previous year, the films themselves provided a much broader range of quality.
Background Concept and Creation. According to the creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, they thought it would be impossible to put a character like Archie Bunker on lateth century television.
But then they came up with the idea that it might be allowed if the character were an animated nine (formerly eight) year-old boy living in the mountain town of South Park, Colorado.
