Once users enable America’s Victoria, they can “Ask a Question” about the life of Victoria Woodhull to explore Victoria’s themes during her lifetime – she was the first woman to run for US President in 1872 – her poverty stricken childhood, politics, her publishing success, her time as a stockbroker, her hard times, and her final days in England.
- “Ask a Question” Answers/Responses appear in ScrollView that are read using the Speech Synchronization feature. The background archival images are from the documentary, “America’s Victoria, Remembering Victoria Woodhull.”
- “Tell me a Quote” from Victoria’s fiery speeches can be selected from a horizontal scrolling Sequence that allows either voice selection or via TouchWrapper . Actress Kate Capshaw performs the voice over of Victoria’s own words.
- “Tell me a Fact” also displays archival images from the documentary with mp3 audio playing in the background. Facts are audio excerpts from the documentary, “America’s Victoria, Remembering Victoria Woodhull.” “Tell me a Fact” audio excerpts also feature interviews with feminist icon Gloria Steinem, and UCLA Professor Ellen DuBois and Boston University Professor, Robert Fox.
“While it would be awesome to be one of ten finalists to win $5000 each, says Victoria lynn Weston, “our ultimate goal of introducing these new voice-first visual experiences like America’s Victoria is to present an engaging, conversational user experience when it comes to learning about the incredible life of Victoria Woodhull through Alexa, we want to be part of that journey.”

“Knowing about Victoria Woodhull inspires women to be daring, outrageous and creative.” – Gloria Steinem
“If you spliced the genes of Hillary Clinton, Madonna, Heidi Fleiss and Margaret Thatcher, you might have someone like Victoria Woodhull.” – Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal & Constitution
America’s Victoria, Remembering Victoria Woodhull was featured on PBS nationally, on Canadian Television and widely distributed to universities, colleges and public schools. Victoria Woodhull burst onto the stage with America s most radical reformers, reoriented their movements, and was gone. People listened to her. A congressional committee reported on her interpretation of the Fourteenth and Fifteenth amendments. She was the first woman to run for president of the United States and the first presidential candidate to spend election day in jail. America’s Victoria is a biography of this enigmatic figure in American history, the daughter of a swindling father and a spiritualist mother, who remade herself several times to become a Wall Street broker, a radical reformer, and, with her third husband, a British lady of the manor. The story is told by a narrator, several commentators, and readings from Woodhull s speeches and contemporary documents. –The American Journal of History
