Seen at the 4th annual Athena Film Festival at Barnard College.
Geraldine Ferraro (“Geri”) was the first woman ever nominated for Vice President of the USA. Ground-breaking! Crowds cheered! But then she got crushed…
Growing animus between Progressives & Conservatives demands that we look back & ask how. (JLH: 4/5)

There are extensive segments where Zaccaro interviews Ferraro about her life & her career. She also interviews many well-known female politicians (most especially Senator Barbara Mikulski from Maryland and Former Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton from New York), female advisors (most especially Former Secretary of State Madeline Albright), female activists (most especially Eleanor Smeal the former President of Now & founder of the Fund for the Feminist Majority), female operatives (most especially pollister Celinda Lake), etc. In addition, she speaks candidly with Former First Lady Barbara Bush. (The Mondale/Ferraro ticket went up against the Reagan/Bush ticket in the 1984 presidential campaign.)
