The League of Women Voters of LA Celebrates its 95th Anniversary @ Pacific Design Center
Nov 8 @ 11:30 am – Nov 8 @ 4:00 pm

The League of Women Voters of Los Angeles is celebrating its 95th anniversary with an extraordinary celebration and fundraiser on Sunday, November 8, 2015 at the Pacific Design Center. The morning begins with a cocktail reception followed by a brief awards presentation and “living room” conversation with the honorees, moderated by award-winning actress Monica Horan Rosenthal of Everybody Loves Raymond. Our anniversary event concludes with a special screening of Focus Features’ new film SUFFRAGETTE, starring Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, and Meryl Streep. Director Sarah Gavron and screenwriter Abi Morgan will introduce the film and participate in a Q&A after the screening.

Free parking in Pacific Design Center parking structure, generously sponsored by SUFFRAGETTE.

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan grassroots volunteer organization, was born in 1920 when fearless women fought for and finally attained the right to vote. Originally designed to help 20 million women carry out their new responsibilities as voters and to nurture civic leaders, today the League continues to engage and empower diverse voices to participate in our democracy, defend and expand voting rights, and advocate for better laws and public policy. The League never supports or opposes any political party or candidate.

SUFFRAGETTE, directed by Sarah Gavron from a script written by Abi Morgan, is the first feature film to tell the story of the battle for women’s voting rights. Academy Award nominees Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter, and three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep, lead the cast of the moving and powerful drama about the women who were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality in early 20th-century Britain. It is a film that will empower all who are striving for equal rights in our own day and age. SUFFRAGETTE, MPAA-rated “PG-13”, also stars Brendan Gleeson, Anne-Marie Duff, Ben Whishaw, Romola Garai, and Natalie Press.
