    1. Victoria Claflin Woodhull

      Victoria Claflin Woodhull September 23, 1838 June 9, 1927 was an American suffragist who was described by Gilded Age newspapers as a leader of the American woman s suffrage movement in the 19th century She became a colorful and notorious symbol for women s rights, free love, fighting corruption, and labor reforms The authorship of many of her speeches and articles is disputed Many of her speeches on these subjects were not written by Woodhull herself alone but also by her backers and husband Either way, her role as a representative of these movements was nonetheless powerful and controversial She was the first woman along with her sister to operate a brokerage firm in Wall Street and then open a weekly newspaper She is most famous for her declaration and campaign to run as the first woman for the United States Presidency in 1872 Many of the reforms and ideals espoused by her for the common working class against the corrupt rich business elite were extremely controversial in her time though generations later many of those implemented are now taken for granted Other ideas and reforms still remain controversial and debated today.
