The Movement

preview broadcast
A large crowd of delegates at the National Women’s Conference, holding signs, gathers front of a stage, over which a hangs a large sign reading: WOMAN. Women riding in the back of a van, with signs reading: “RELAY for E.R.A.: Seneca Falls, NY to Houston, TX;” “New York to Houston” and “Women on the Move.”
When 20,000 women attended the first ever National Women’s Conference in 1977, they debated issues and hammered out resolutions that would determine the future of the U.S. women’s movement.

Using archival footage and interviews with participants, SISTERS OF ’77 brings this historic conference to life. Find out what these leaders are doing today—and how much has really changed for women in America.
