This page lists and where possible, provides access to, a number of films about suffragists. These films include actuality footage from the early 1900's, early fictional films, documentaries, and a British newsreel. While the majority of the films must be viewed in the Moving Image Research Center in Washington, DC, several of the films involving Theodore Roosevelt are available in a digital collection on the Library's website--they are linked and can be viewed below in the section about this digital collection.

Most other items listed here are linked to the full bibliographic record of that item in the Library of Congress Online Catalog. In a couple of cases, when the film does not have a public-facing catalog record, only minimal bibliographic information is provided.

See the Using the Collections section of this Research Guide for more information on searching the collections.
