Synopsis

Jeannette Rankin by Mary Barmeyer O'Brien

The first woman ever elected to the U.S. Congress, Jeannette Rankin represented Montana for two terms in the U.S. House of Representatives. A leading advocate for both woman suffrage and world peace, she was instrumental in securing the right or Montana women to vote, five years before the right was granted nationally. As the sole female member of the U.S. Congress in 1919, Jeanette was the only woman to vote for national suffrage. This biography reveals Jeannette Rankins life and personal story, exposing her many courageous and remarkable accomplishments.
