Hillary Rodham Clinton stopped by The Tonight Show last night to discuss the upcoming election, as well as the new musical Suffs, on which she serves as a producer.

"This is such an exciting, thrilling story about of real life women, great American women...and what they went through to get us the right to vote," she said about Suffs. "It was important then and it's as important right now. The story is really powerful."

She went on to share, "I've watched this from The Public Theater when I first saw it in 2022 in the summer, to now on Broadway, and the work that's gone into it, and the joy they have in putting it together is so infectious."

"It was so exciting," Clinton shared of being asked to join the musical's producing team. "It's a big deal for me."

From the singular mind of Shaina Taub, Suffs boldly explores the victories and failures of a struggle for equality that’s far from over. It’s 1913 and the women’s movement is heating up in America, anchored by the suffragists — “Suffs,” as they call themselves — and their relentless pursuit of the right to vote. Reaching across and against generational, racial, and class divides, these brilliant, flawed women entertain and inspire us with the story of their hard-won victory in an ongoing fight. So much has changed since the passing of the Nineteenth Amendment over a century ago, and yet we’re reminded sometimes we need to look back, in order to march fearlessly into the future.

Jill Furman and Rachel Sussman serve as lead producers of Suffs, with Hillary Rodham Clinton and Malala Yousafzai serving as producers.
