WORLD'S SECOND WOMAN TO RUN FOR
PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

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

Who was the second woman to run for President of the United States?

Shirley Chisholm was the second woman to step up on the political platform and run for the office of the President of the United States.

Shirley Chisholm had many accomplishments during her life, including being the first African-American woman to be voted into Congress.

Chisholm ran for the Presidency in the 1972 election and made headlines when she went to see her opponent, George Wallace, when he was hospitalized to wish him a ‘get well soon.’ Although she was the first woman to announce her nomination during that election, she was not the only woman to run. Two other women, Linda Jenness and Evelyn Reed, also ran for the position.

The election ended up coming down to Richard Nixon and George McGovern, with Nixon winning the majority of votes.
