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. Arguably one of the most revolutionary women in American history, she was breaking boundaries many years ahead of her time.
