A 40-minute, two-part introduction to Jeannette Rankin, not only the First Woman in Congress, but the first woman ever elected to a national representative body anywhere in the world. Rankin was called many things in her lifetime—suffragette, feminist, pacifist, a traitor, a disgrace, an activist, a senior hippie, a woman of courage, a remarkable woman, and ultimately, a Great American.
Enjoy Nadine Arlyn’s 30-minute dramatization of the important moments in Jeannette’s life from age 24 in 1904 to age 92 in 1972, including her Congressional votes against both World Wars and leading a ten-thousand-woman march up Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House to protest the Vietnam War.
