1st Little Ladies
Film by April G. Joffee

    1st Little Ladies


    The focus of “1st Little Ladies” is to let young voices be heard, and particularly show how Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign shaped the aspirations/hopes/fears/doubts of young girls pre and post the 2016 election. This film marks a milestone in history, and opens the first chapter of discussion from a perspective not often considered, in the big wide world of politics.
