“Trailblazing Women in Ohio Politics”
Trailblazing Women in Ohio Politics is a WBGU-PBS public television documentary and oral history project marking the electoral achievements of Democratic and Republican women who have broken electoral barriers in Ohio. Greeted with skepticism by voters beginning in the 1960s, each trailblazer overcame obstacles and sometimes hostility to get elected. Featured trailblazers include the first woman Speaker of the Ohio House of Representatives, the first African American woman lieutenant governor in all 50 states, and the longest-serving woman in the US House of Representatives.

At Bowling Green State University she teaches courses in American Government, Political Parties, Voter Behavior, Women in American Politics, and Research Methods.
