      Victoria Claflin Woodhull, later Victoria Woodhull Martin (1838 – 1927), was an American leader of the woman's suffrage movement. In 1872 Woodhull was the first female candidate for President of the United States. She was also the first woman to start a weekly newspaper and an activist for women's rights and labor reforms. Woodhull was an advocate of free love, by which she meant the freedom to marry, divorce, and bear children without government interference.

      Victoria Woodhull (1838-1927) was suffragette, stock broker, publisher, and the first woman to run for the U.S. presidency. Her early years were spent in a travelling fortune-telling and medicine family show as a psychic. Later--a divorcee twice over--she operated a brokerage firm on Wall Street with her sister. She also started a reform magazine which argued for equal standards for men and women, mystical socialism, and the legalization of prostitution during the repressive Victorian era.

      Victoria Woodhull, the first woman to run for President of the United States (and who had great taste in hats). Her running mate, interestingly enough, was Frederick Douglass, the first African-American to run for Vice President. This is cool mess of history that I'm literally salivating over! Grade SCHOOLS! What are you doing not teaching any of this?!

    prev. pinner: My friend on the farm in Indiana lived in a lovely old brick house, with great fireplaces, and beautiful big chapel shaped windows. One day she showed me an old wood stove just like this,. It was in pieces and she discovered it in a shed. We loved it...but didn't 't know where either of us could use it.

    This city letter carrier posed for a humorous photograph with a young boy in his mailbag. After parcel post service was introduced in 1913, at least two children were sent by the service. With stamps attached to their clothing, the children rode with railway and city carriers to their destination. The Postmaster General quickly issued a regulation forbidding the sending of children in the mail after hearing of those examples.
