On March 13 the film about the suffrage movement in the United States, “Iron Jawed Angels,” will be shown in the Elliott Union Cinema at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., followed by a panel discussion with Sundberg; Darlene Budd, professor of political science; and Elizabeth Smith, instructor of history.

All events are free and open to the public.
