Review

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

Victoria Woodhull burst onto the stage with America s most radical reformers, reoriented their movements, and was gone. People listened to her. A congressional committee reported on her interpretation of the Fourteenth and Fifteenth amendments. She was the first woman to run for president of the United States and the first presidential candidate to spend election day in jail. Harriet Beecher Stowe and Catherine Beecher used their cultural leverage to label her a tramp. Anthony Comstock declared war on her for distributing obscene materials. She almost brought an end to Henry Ward Beecher s career. America's Victoria is a biography of this enigmatic figure in American history, the daughter of a swindling father and a spiritualist mother, who remade herself several times to become a Wall Street broker, a radical reformer, and, with her third husband, a British lady of the manor. The story is told by a narrator, several commentators, and readings from Woodhull s speeches and contemporary documents. --The American Journal of History

Victoria Woodhull was a fascinating woman, way ahead of her time, an advocate not only of women's suffrage but of legalized prostitution, equality in marriage, and free love, by which she meant a commitment untrammeled by governmental regulations. She ran for president four times and generally lived a life imagined by most women (and men) of her day. She is described as electrifying, larger than life, and flamboyant. Interviews with Gloria Steinem, Ellen Dubois (a UCLA historian), and others are filled with enthusiasm and admiration. Recommended for Women's Studies collections. --Library Journal

Product Description

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.

AMERICA'S VICTORIA, REMEMBERING VICTORIA WOODHULL was featured at the annual Montreal/Quebec International Film Festival 2010 - honoring 90th year women got the vote!

5.0 out of 5 stars Every school girl should have this documentary December 3, 2007
Format:DVD
Every school girl needs to watch this, a fascinating documentary, with first class production values. The road from Victoria Woodhull to Hillary's run for President is a rich full history, and it all began with Victoria Woodhull. Every school and college library should have this excellent DVD. I enjoyed it so much, and find myself inspired and in awe that someone so remarkable would have dared to - not just run for US President, but also to become the first woman on Wall Street. She challenged authority and the status quo in a way that makes all women proud. Buy this one for the young girl you love the most, and let it sink in - as her own inspiration as to how much farther she can go in life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent September 5, 2007
Format:DVD
This is a long overdue documentary about Victoria Woodhull. The interviews are engaging, serious and captivating. There is much presented in this documentary about Woodhull I had forgotten, such as the infamous BEECHER TILTON TRIAL, it was the trial of the century and Woodhull nearly brought the famous Rev Henry Ward Beecher down. Another issue, is that Victoria Woodhull was arrested under the same law as Margaret Sanger, the Comstock Law for printing obscenities. Imagine if today, someone enforced the same laws! This is a well told story about a gutsy woman who, came from nothing and rose to the New York Society scene, to be the first woman to address the House Judiciary Committee, the first woman on Wall Street and to run for US President - 4 times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Miss This One August 25, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a fine documentary about a fascinating and little-known American, the first woman to run for President. If you find her life as fascinating as I did, you might want to read about her further. I would recommend the book Other Powers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Story & Great History Lesson! August 31, 2007
Format:DVD
What an amazing story! Until now I had never heard of Victoria Woodhull, much less any of her worthy accomplishments. She was the first woman to run for US President in 1872 (she nominated herself 4 times total) when women didn't even have the right to vote! I throughly enjoyed the interviews with Gloria Steinem and the history professors. An inspiring story well told, well thought out. I highly recommend this documentaryAmerica's Victoria, Remembering Victoria Woodhull (Director's Cut~ Two Disc - Collector's Edition).
