Hear about our first feminist writer Mary Wollstonecraft, and witness Sojourner Truths powerful "Aint' I Woman" speech. Learn how Alice Paul stole President Wilsons parade, and see how she suffered for the cause. Watch Nancy Pelosi become the First Female Speaker of The House, learn about Shirley Chisholms humanity, and what inspired Bella Abzug. Hear about Pat Schroeder, Katie Couric, Malala Yousafzai, Eleanor Roosevelt, Golda Meir, Victoria Woodhull (the first woman to run for president) and Hillary Clinton, bloomers, suffrage, maternal profiling, the road to Seneca Falls, abolition and more! Its all there in a GALA-PALOOZA honoring Female America.
