Screening of Trailblazing Women in Ohio Politics
March 21 @ 5:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Come see Trailblazing Women in Ohio Politics at Bowling Green State University!
This screening is accompanied by a reception to take place in the Theater Lounge at the Bowen-Thompson Student Union.
Trailblazing Women in Ohio Politics is a WBGU-PBS public television documentary and oral history project marking the electoral achievements of Democratic and Republican women who have broken electoral barriers in Ohio. Greeted with skepticism by voters beginning in the 1960s, each trailblazer overcame obstacles and sometimes hostility to get elected. Featured trailblazers include the first woman Speaker of the Ohio House of Representatives, the first African American woman lieutenant governor in all 50 states, and the longest-serving woman in the US House of Representatives.
Information, educational resources, and additional interviews not included in the documentary can be found at bgsu.edu/trailblazers!
This project was supported in part by Ohio Humanities with a planning grant.
