I loved this documentary so much that I made a pilgrimage to Seneca Falls, NY to look at the locations for myself. It's amazing to learn that this history happened not that long ago. The world changes very fast. I recommend this documentary for any age, in or out of a classroom setting. It's a wonderful tool for teachers. Beautiful photographs and writing, interesting insight comments by intelligent scholars. The only flaw is the music, it's very repetitive and bland.
But overall a "must see" for anyone who has any interest in history and the changes in women's rights.
