“I Want to go to Jail” transports you back to February, 1919, when women suffragists grappled with unexpected obstacles in their quest for the final vote needed to pass the suffrage amendment. They were arrested for picketing President Wilson at the Boston State House and served time in the Charles Street Jail. These were the last arrests of the suffrage movement.
