Film documents history of women in politics in Colorado

Colorado first state to elect female lawmakers

Denver -

Colorado was the first state in the nation to give women the right to vote through a popular vote.

It was also the first state in the nation to elect three women to the state's House of Representatives.

Now, filmmakers here in Colorado are documenting the colorful history of women in politics in our state in the documentary Strong Sisters.

About 42% of Colorado's state legislature is made up of women, but despite our pioneering spirit, there has never been a female Governor or U.S. Senator from Colorado.

Meg Froelich, one of the producers of the film, sat down to talk with Anne Trujillo about the film and how it came together on a Politics Unplugged.

You can learn more about the film and where you can see it at StrongSisters.org.
