At the time of Anthony’s death on March 13th only four states – Wyoming, Colorado Idaho, and Utah – granted women the right to fight. It was until that national suffrage became reality.

The Famous Five by Margaret Blair 01/10/2018 October 18th 1929 is a date that went down in Canadian history because it was on that day that women were finally declared “persons” under Canadian law. Before this big step towards equality of the sexes Canada was governed by The British North America Act or the BNA which did not recognize women as a person. At the time “persons” referred to either more than one person as in a group of people or “he” when used to describe one person. Therefore what this meant for women was that you couldn’t become a judge or part of the senate because those members who didn’t want women in the courthouse could simply state that a women isn’t a person by law and therefore not eligible for such positions. This of course meant that women did not have any real power or control over laws which governed their lives.
Kisses for My President was released in 1964, the same decade where women finally saw change, the decade that changed the course of how Americans would view women in the near future, and finally the decade that was full of promises for American women. The historical significance of Kisses for My President is why such a comical film was chosen for discussion. The motion picture, Kisses for My President, is about Leslie McCloud (Polly Bergen) whom becomes the first female president of the United States and her husband Thad McCloud (Fred MacMurray) who tries to adjust to the duties that were once reserved for a First Lady. As expected, President McCloud’s family begins to fall apart and the McCloud children begin to become troublesome, all while Leslie is handling the duties of a President. Leslie handles her career as President well throughout the film, but the film concludes with Madame President resigning due to an unexpected pregnancy.
