The very first woman

The very first woman to run for the presidency of the United States was Victoria Claflin Woodhull in 1872. She ran on a platform of free love, women’s suffrage, short skirts, legalized prostitution and the right of women to orgasm. She was arrested and jailed on obscenity charges the day before the election. She lost the election to Ulysses S. Grant.
