Victoria Woodhull: Shattering Glass Ceilings

The first woman to run for the presidency of the United States is coming to the screen in late 2024!

This project was put together by the award winning team that told the story of historic hiker, "Grandma" Emma Gatewood. EVE staff Bette Lou Higgins and Kelly Boyer Sagert joined Peter Huston of FilmAffects to tell Victoria's story with a storytelling program, companion book and a documentary. The book and storytelling program were completed in 2019 and now the film is being completed for a premier in the fall of 2024.
