Former Congresswoman, Pat Schroeder, discusses her career in Congress.
"I take what they say and use it against them. What I do is jujitsu. They say something ridiculous and I subject them to scorn and ridicule. That's my job." -Al Franken
Brought to you by the makers of the Oscar(R)-nominated The War Room, AL FRANKEN: GOD SPOKE is an intimate and hilarious behind-the-scenes look at the life of the former Saturday Night Live comedian turned author, radio host, and political satirist. Go on the road with Franken as he wages his unrelenting one-man crusade against the hypocrisies and cynicism of the far right.
From the birth of the liberal Air America radio network to the floor of the Republic National Convention, there is no better tour guide through the tumult of recent American politics than Al Franken. Acclaimed directors Nick Dobb and Chris Hegedus provide a front-row seat to the entertaining and often absurd theater of America's partisan politics, while telling the story of Franken's transformation from irreverent gadfly of the American right to still irreverent potential Senate candidate. Including footage of his well-publicized dust-ups with Ann Coulter and Bill O'Reilly, AL FRANKEN: GOD SPOKE is a bitingly funny look at the culture of politics.
Schroeder on how the Women's Movement opened the door for working women, but how so many still feel they need to go home and 'bake bread.'
Schroeder on how women's health has been largely neglected by the National Institutes of Health, and that even in the 80s women were excluded from NIH studies--even the breast cancer one.
