Frances Perkins: Fire and Ice – A New Film in Production

This new film is currently in the support and production stage for a new APT/PBS film on the life and legacy of Labor Secretary Frances Perkins titled Frances Perkins: Fire and Ice.  

Perkins was the first woman appointed to the U.S. Cabinet and served the longest term as Secretary of Labor from 1933 to 1945.  She helped push the labor movement into the New Deal coalition.  It is important to never forget the origins of the American Social Safety Net and the woman who was accountable for it.
