Storyline

Little known 19th-century American feminist, Victoria Woodhull gets an overdue examination via rare archival photos, sketches and interviews from historians, writers and an admiring Gloria Steinem. Actress Kate Capshaw lends her voice to this flamboyant suffragist who became the first woman to run for US President in 1872. A "free love" advocate, Woodhull blazed the trail in male domains such as publishing (Woodhull & Claflin's Weekly) and financial investing made her a social force to be reckoned with, as depicted in this biography. Written by Victoria lynn Weston, poster summary

Victoria Woodhall's life and Presidential Run
9 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here is the amazing story of one of the most interesting woman ever! A true free spirit who was way ahead of her time, and not afraid to speak out. From the business of Wall Street to politics and running for US President in 1872, she was met with much support, and lots of censorship and opposition, this in a time when women could not even vote.

The voice of Kate Capshaw as Victoria Woodhall was a perfect choice, and the interview with Gloria Steinem brings this story to life for today.

The directors cut includes an interview with an elderly gentlemen that was an actual neighbor of Victoria Woodhall.

With all the political headlines today about a woman candidate for president, Victoria Woodhall should become a household name. This film is a must see for all women, and all the men who appreciate the women who risk everything to change the rules!
