AMERICA'S FIRST
WOMAN TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Who was the world's first woman to run for US president?

Victoria Claflin Woodhull was the first woman to be nominated and campaign for the U.S. presidency in 1872. She was nominated by the Women's National Equal Rights Party; however, many people called it the free love ticket.

Not only was she the first woman to run for the presidency, but her and her sister, Tennessee, were the first female stockbrokers in 1870. During the time of her campaign for president she devoted an entire issue of Woodhull & Claflin's Weekly (November 2, 1872) to a rumored affair between Elizabeth Tilton and Reverend Henry Ward Beecher. With this issue, Victoria and Tennessee were both arrested by U.S. Federal Marshals for sending obscene material through the mail. The arrest prevented Victoria from being present during the 1872 presidential election.
