Share this groundbreaking moment in American History to inspire more women to get politically active and pursue leadership roles.
Geraldine Ferraro: Paving the Way is a documentary about the life of the trailblazing woman who made history in 1984 as the first female Vice Presidential nominee on a major party ticket in the United States.
- While women have made considerable progress in gaining election to public office since Ferraro's pioneering nomination, they still only occupy 24% of state legislatures, 10% of governorships, and less than 20% of the U.S. Congress.
-American women occupy almost 52% of all professional-level jobs, yet lag substantially behind men in holding leadership positions-comprising only 14.6% of executive officers and 4.6% of Fortune 500 CEOs.
"Fascinating...the film reminds us Ferraro's nomination was every bit the milestone."
- Washington Post
"Ferraro's campaign eased America's long-running doubt that a woman could be accepted at that level of national leadership. She reset the bar at a place from which it couldn't be lowered."
