This 17-minute video details the life of Jeannette Rankin as a Montana stateswoman. The video notes Rankin's early influences, her work as a suffragist, and her election to the United States Congress in 1916 and again in 1940. Rankin knowingly compromised her political career to uphold her convictions to maintain peace by being the only American congressperson to vote against both world wars. Her legacy towards working for peace continued through the Vietnam era until her death at age 92. http://mhs.mt.gov/Education/MontanaMo...
