Tagline: The Suffragists (Las Sufragistas) tells the story of Eufrosina Cruz, an indigenous woman from the Zapotec community of Santa María Quiegolani in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico.  In 2008, her right to vote and run as Municipal President of her community was denied on the grounds that indigenous customary laws prohibit women from participating in electoral processes.  In Mexico, women won the right to full suffrage in 1953.  Today, after a long battle, Eufrosina Cruz is a representative in Mexico’s federal government, and the first indigenous woman to be a member of the Congress of Oaxaca.  The Suffragists details her political struggle, as well as Mexican women’s long fight for political power, beginning with the Revolutionary period.
