The Magic Sash is a journey back in time hosted by gold-medal gymnast and advocate Aly Raisman. Join Lotty and Isaiah, two very modern fifth graders as they meet iconic heroes of the movement for women’s right to vote and experience big moments in women’s suffrage first-hand. They’ll learn that what women (and men) fought for — women’s full political equality —  isn’t dusty history at all.

The Magic Sash is a production of the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission, the National Park Service, TRAX from PRX, and Gen-Z Media.
