Episode 5: “The Right Things,” a Conversation with Congresswoman Liz Holtzman
Play • 49 min

In 1972, Holtzman became the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. Defeating 50-year-incumbent Emanuel Celler, she shortly became the only Judiciary Committee member gutsy enough to ask Gerald Ford whether he'd pardoned Nixon as a quid pro quo, then filed suit to halt our illegal bombing of Cambodia during the Vietnam War. She's still not one to pull a punch.  www.vocalheroes.com
