Studio Carlton brings the Victoria Woodhull Documentary to Alexa Audiences
When Sen. Clinton ran for president in 2008 and in 2016, the press trumpeted the fact that she was a woman, as though she were the first to run for president. She was not. That honor goes to Victoria Woodhull, who ran for president in 1872 – a time when women didn’t even have the right to vote in the United States.
The PBS featured documentary, “America’s Victoria, Remembering Victoria Woodhull” tells the story of Victoria Woodhull, the first woman to run for US President in 1872. The documentary was featured on PBS and Canadian Broadcasts, distributed to universities, colleges and public libraries and is currently available on DVD.
Today, the director and producer, Victoria lynn Weston says, “I wanted to give a fresh look to my Victoria Woodhull documentary and was very excited to utilize voice technology and recognition to inject new life into a very interesting historical figure.”
While most schoolchildren are familiar with the name of suffragette and women’s rights crusader Susan B. Anthony, Victoria Woodhull and her many groundbreaking accomplishments remain largely forgotten. Fortunately, the future is here with Amazon Echo technology. Amazon’s Alexa is an essential tool that is an innovative yet a more personable way to communicate, educate and engage audiences worldwide. According to recent research by eMarketer, an estimated 35.6 million Americans will use a voice-controlled speaker at least once a month in 2017, a 128.9% increase over last year.
Today, audiences prefer to get their information and entertainment from a more modern platform. The 90-minute documentary, “America’s Victoria, Remembering Victoria Woodhull” has been curated into an engaging and interactive Alexa Skill for Amazon Echo Devices. Once you enable “America’s Victoria”, Alexa will provide two options: “Would you like to ask a question or listen to fact of the day?” Users can simply say, ‘fact of the day’ to hear historical facts regarding Victoria Woodhull’s life including her Presidential campaign.
“America’s Victoria” Alexa Skill presents over forty audio clips from the documentary which includes interviews with Gloria Steinem, historians and actress Kate Capshaw into bite-size audio clips for users to explore Victoria Woodhull’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, hard times, and her final days in England – to showcase this documentary into a digital, user friendly entertainment medium. “We tell the story of not just Victoria Woodhull and her accomplishments, but help students understand how far women have come and inspire them to reach even higher to achieve their goals,” says Weston.

Feng shui is an ancient practice developed over 3,000 years ago in China. Feng shui is not religion or superstition; it is a science because its formulas and fundamentals are based on empirical research and it is an art because experience and judgment are critical in the analysis. Feng Shui focuses on the study of Qi (pronounced “chi”, which is vital life energy) and how it can be harnessed to create harmonious living; better health, successful career or business, and fulfilling relationships for the people inhabiting the space.
