11 a.m. & 2:30 p.m. - "I decline to stand up as the frightful example": A Portrayal of Victoria Woodhull

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 workday, 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.
