Excellent documentary on women in power
8 December 2012 | by sfdphdSee all my reviews

This is an excellent documentary on not just Ann Richards in Texas but also the history of women elected to office in the U.S.

We learn about Gov Richards' history in helping John Kennedy get elected, then helping other women get elected, and then getting pushed to run for office herself.

It's very funny because Gov Richards has a good sense of humor. The film is also a sharp commentary on the difficulties that women can have in getting elected in terms of raising money and dealing with personal attacks.

Gov Richards made some progressive changes in Texas that George Bush later eliminated. We see the ways in which people with money can dominate and prevent improvements in conditions in this country.

It is very relevant to today's political situation.
