    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.
