So how could Victoria Woodhull run for president in 1872 as the candidate of the Equal Rights Party? Well, the eligibility criteria in Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution did not specify gender, so Ms. Woodhull was eligible. Ironically she was one year too young to be eligible, since she was not yet 35-but she ran anyway. For perspective, that was twenty years after Geraldine Ferraro ran for Vice President beside Walter Mondale, four years before Sarah Palin was on the ticket for Vice President with John McCain, and twelve years before Hillary Clinton became the first woman nominated by a major party as their candidate for President.

Amazingly, one woman achieved each of these feats, and her name has been all but erased from history.

Victoria Woodhull was the first woman to do many things: the first woman to own a newspaper, to speak before Congress, and to have a seat on the stock exchange. But her boldest act was announcing herself as the first female candidate for the presidency of the United States in 1872-before women even had the right to vote.
