The New Woman: Annie 'Londonderry' Kopchovsky

 

Year: 2012
Country: USA
Run Time: 27 minutes

Until 1894, there were no female sports stars, no product endorsement deals, and no young, Jewish mothers with the chutzpah to circle the globe on a bicycle. Annie Kopchovsky changed all of that. A spicy blend of adventure, social history, and portrait of an athletic pioneer, 'The New Woman: Annie 'Londonderry' Kopchovsky' is a documentary film about an improbable journey by bicycle and the eccentric, fiery woman who dared to undertake it.
