New Oral History Center Podcast: Women In Politics

 

A young Helen Gahagan Douglas during her Hollywood years. She was a successful actress and singer before entering Congress, making her one of California’s original movie star politicians.

In this Historic year for women in politics, our new podcast series, From The Outside In: Women In Politics, showcases important interviews from the Bancroft Library collection with women who have left their mark on the political arena.

This six episode series will run until the 2016 Presidential Election, with new episodes released every Monday. The series is narrated by Emmy-Award winning journalist Belva Davis.

This week please join us for episode two, “Cracking the Ceiling and Breaking the Mold,” featuring Communist Party activist LaRue McCormick and California’s famed “Pink Lady,” Congresswoman Helen Douglas.

This episode, and further information about the series, can be found at the Oral History Center website.
