Historian, member of the Montana Legislature, and long-time Missoula resident Diane Sands describes in fascinating detail the story of women's suffrage, both in Montana and nationwide.  November 3, 2014 marks the hundredth anniversary of women winning the right to vote in the state. Diane helps us understand how we got there, where we are today, and why it's as important as ever for women to act on their hard-won right to vote. Produced by Amy Cilimburg.
