Fascinating history of 2 incredible American women
An excellent historical view of two of the most influential women who fought side by side through thick and thin to give all women the legal and social freedoms they have today.. The only reason this does not get 10 stars is the annoying constantly overly loud music. Ken Burns usually has strong quality documentaries.. But it seems this one borrowed the sound track from the Civil War series and repeated it to death. Ruined a great piece of music for me and almost made me quit watching...Part of me wishes they would redo this and take out 3/4 of the background music. End of rant. There is substantial historical information on the hardships, struggles and social inequities of women in the 1800s.
