“I decline to stand up as the frightful example”: An In-person Portrayal of Victoria Woodhull

Ohio History Center

Sat., March 25, 1–2 p.m.

According to her contemporaries, Victoria Woodhull was a woman 100 years ahead of her time. Although few have heard of her today, when she ran for President of the United States in 1872, she was one of the most famous women in the country. She advocated many things taken for granted today: the 8-hour work day, graduated income tax, social welfare programs, and profit sharing, for example. Listen as Victoria expounds on her thoughts. Robin Schuricht of Buckeye Lake, portrays Victoria Woodhull.

Included with museum admission.

Nineteenth-Century Women and Domesticity (2023 Power of Voice Series)

Harriet Beecher Stowe House, Cincinnati, OH

Weds., March 1, 7–8:30 p.m.

Praise for the “True Woman” by Catharine Beecher, her sister Harriet, and many others in the nineteenth century sought to elevate the status of women by celebrating their roles at home as wives and mothers, but this ideal was often used to confine women to subservience at home and deny them freedom outside it. For Women’s History Month, we’ll consider three women authors of the nineteenth century to see how the stories they tell reflect on the ideal of the True Woman and also speak to our time.
