Jeannette Rankin: American Conscience

Program Description

Humanitarian, pacifist, and tireless advocate for social reform, Jeannette Rankin was the first woman elected to U.S. Congress, and the only member of Congress to vote against U.S. entry into both world wars. Bradbury, as Jeannette, discusses her journey from grassroots suffragist to being the first woman to participate in United State government. Hear in Jeannette’s own words her views on equality and government reform—words that ring true today.
