Voices For Freedom



Victoria Woodhull was the first woman from New York to run for President of the United States in 1872 against Ulysses T Grant. She ran representing the Equal Rights Party.

She and her sister, Tennessee Claflin, founded and operated a newspaper called the Woodhull-Claflin Times and with the help of Cornelius Vanderbilt opened the first Wall Street brokerage firm operated by women.

Victoria was a member of the Free Love movement which opposed legal or religious interference in personal partnerships.

A famous man proposes marriage. How will this affect their work on women's rights and their financial stability?

The Bewitching Brokers Act 2

Victoria's Presidential campaign ended badly. The newspaper shut down after an expose of a prominent minister, leaving the two sisters in a long court battle. Now they are broke and struggling to survive again.

A surprise visitor changes everything. Soon they will be taking a trip across the ocean.

Helena Blavatsky

"There is no religion higher than the Truth." Blavatsky. A Secret Doctrine

Helena P Blavatsky, a Russian born naturalized U.S. citizen, founded the Theosophical Society in 1875. The Theosophical Society, still in existence today, seeks to unite theology and science. Blavatsky was considered the greatest esoteric and seer of her time.

Iyawata has created fictionalized dramas which utilize her historical research and study of Blavatsky's writings and ideas.

Blavatsky's Esoteric Adventures, a dramatic trilogy of three plays written by Iyawata feature Blavatsky, Eliza the spiritual aspirant, and other characters who explore and confront the facets of the topic: a UFO report, esoteric musical tones and telepathic communication.

Each play is approximately forty-five minutes in length.
