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

I saw her speak and she is brilliant
17 July 2014 | by abbiealabamaSee all my reviews

Victoria Weston of Atlanta Georgia is the reincarnated Victoria Woodhall.

I saw her speak and she is brilliant.

Excellent story and so timely with Hillary Clinton making the 2016 run for the white house.

This film deserves attention

Victoria was the lover of major characters of the age, and yet she had all the gifts of an independent lady. Her story is incredible, along the lines of "truth is stranger than fiction." This is a well done work, and hopefully it will receive the attention it deserves as Hillary makes her run for the white house. I suspect Victoria Weston is a major supporter of Hillary, as well she should be.
