Based on the life of Victoria Woodhull (1838-1927), Victory for Victoria traces life of this pioneering feminist from obscurity to prosperity. Guided by spirit visions, she overcomes childhood poverty and an abusive early marriage, becoming the first female stockbroker on Wall Street, the first woman to address Congress, and the first woman to run for President. She galvanizes the woman suffrage movement with her bold advocacy of women’s political, economic, and sexual equality, but her career crashes after she exposes the adultery of America’s beloved clergyman Henry Ward Beecher.  A multifarious and fascinating character study, Victory for Victoria examines Woodhull’s life and legacy in all its complexity.
