Finding Justice: The Untold Story of Women's Fight for the Vote tells the story of a band of intrepid women and their one-ton bronze bell that became a celebrated icon of the women's suffrage movement.
The creation of suffragists in Pennsylvania who were agitating for the right to vote, the bell—modeled after the Liberty Bell—helped rally support around the cause of women’s suffrage in those last crucial years leading up to the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment.
