Victoria Woodhull

SHARE

The first woman ever to run for President of the U.S., she conspired with Commodore Vanderbilt to crash the stock market on Black Friday of 1869.

She was complex person who promoted herself as a clairvoyant to start a social revolution that will end in equality for all.

Using her fortune, Victoria opens first female brokerage firm, starts a newspaper, testifies in front of Congress, and becomes the first American to publish Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto.

Announcing her candidacy before women have the right to vote, Victoria then becomes the first woman to run for President in an effort to sabotage, Susan B. Anthony, the greatest female social reformer of the Nineteenth Century. And yet both reformers end up in jail on election night.
