Victoria Woodhull
Woodhull For President

Many people have been asking, "What's next now that your Grandma Gatewood project is done?" It was a difficult decision - so many stories to choose from! But after much discussion, we have chosen to spotlight Victoria Woodhull as our next Feisty Female.

Don't know who Victoria Woodhull is? She was once the most famous woman in America!

 


Victoria Woodhull

Victoria Woodhull (September 23, 1838-June 10, 1927) is truly one of Ohio's most remarkable characters. Coming from a poverty-stricken background and with little education, she managed to become the first woman to publicly address the United States Congress, first woman to run for U.S. president, was an active suffragist, newspaper editor and stockbroker -- she accomplished more than anyone would have expected. (Read more about her)

Writer Kelly Boyer Sagert will again be handling our script and Director Peter Huston will be handling the filming duties. Huston calls this "... a great story." and Sagert says that she "... has been fascinated by Victoria Woodhull for decades and is thrilled with the opportunity to delve into Woodhull's rich and complex life."

Victoria was the first woman to push her way onto the political stage. She ran a newspaper and became a stockbroker. As Victoria put it, “I endeavor to make the most of everything.” And that’s a goal we all should try to achieve — she sure did!

Recently, we announced that though the pandemic has required us to make a number of changes as we move forward with our plans of creating a documentary about Victoria Woodhull, we intend to complete this project. We have decided that we will finish the film on our own. What this means is that we will NOT be actively seeking foundation grants, but will be using the funds from our murder mystery fundraiser from January of 2020 and counting on the continued support from our audience!

Of course, this means scaling back the scope of the project a bit, but it will allow us to move forward after having lost so much momentum during the COVID shut down. If you would like to help make a movie, now's your chance! Of course, if making a movie isn't your thing, you can help us with all our other expenses, by telling us to use your donation for general support and we will be extremely grateful for that as well. If you have questions about this project or ideas on how to help with fundraising, please let us know! We'd be happy to talk to you.

As a not-for-profit corporation, your donation is tax-deductible. You can donate on-line with a credit card or you can send us a check. Your donation may not get Victoria elected president, but it WILL help us tell her story!

Thanks!

We tip our hats to our donors!

There's no such thing a "small donation"!
