Quotes

Robert Wuhl: Now, when we hear the term "based on a true story", we generally don't think about books, do we? We usually think about it in movies. For example, this movie: "A Beautiful Mind". It told the inspiring story of mathematician John Nash who went from schizophrenia to the Nobel Prize into the arms of the woman he loved. The end. Now, the filmmakers did leave out a few details of Nash's life. They left out the fact that John Nash fathered a child out of wedlock and was a deadbeat dad. They left out ...

Victoria Woodhull runs for President in 1872!
7 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tonight's episode, Wuhl talks about Victoria Woodhull and her running with black reformer Frederick Douglass. The truth is Woodhull nominated Douglass without his consent. He was actually in Paris at the time she nominated him.

There is an excellent documentary on Victoria Woodhull; America's Victoria, Remembering Victoria Woodhull. It's aired on PBS and was just recently released via DVD on Amazon.

Review If you spliced the genes of Hillary Clinton, Madonna, Heidi Fleiss and Margaret Thatcher, you might have someone like Victoria Woodhull." - --Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal & Constitution

Product Description Previously featured on PBS Television and Canadian Broadcasts. VICTORIA WOODHULL became the first woman to campaign for US President in 1872. AMERICA'S VICTORIA is a wonderful chronicle of the life of one of the most important and unrecognized women in US history. Although she was a radical suffragist, she refused to restrict her Presidential campaign to the issue of women's suffrage. Instead, she advocated a single sexual standard for men and women, legalization of prostitution and reform of marriage. AMERICA'S VICTORIA combines rare archival images, Woodhull's own words (ready by KATE CAPSHAW), and illuminating interviews with contemporary feminist, GLORIA STEINEM to present a fascinating portrait of this remarkably brave woman.
