Who was Rebecca L. Felton?

A fascinating woman. Rebecca L. Felton was, among other things
Listen to her (and see her) in her own words *here* describing growing up in a time most of us can barely imagine.

“A Senator of the U.S., a woman, is still a sort of political joke with our masculine leaders in party politics. . .But the trail has been blazed! The road is apparently rough—maybe rocky—but the trail has been located. It is an established fact. While it is also a romantic adventure, it will ever remain an historical precedent—never to be erased.”
– Rebecca Felton, Nov. 7, 1922
