Victoria Woodhull (1838-1927), the “magnetic healer” was a stockbroker, publisher and a freethinking free-love advocate who was the first women to run for President in 1872. Oddly enough, it’s not known how many votes she actually received.
She was able to finance her run for President of the United States because of her great success on Wall Street. Victoria Woodhull and her sister, Miss Tennie C. Claflin were the first female stockbrokers.
We went unto Wall Street, not particularly because I wanted to be a broker …
BUT BECAUSE I WANTED TO PLANT THE FLAG OF WOMEN’S REBELLION IN THE CENTER OF THE CONTINENT.”
Watch the short video below about Victoria and how her and her sister Tennie changed the shape of Wall St. over night in 1870.
