People need to realize that Hillary is not the first woman presidential candidate. Many people keep making this mistake. Victoria Woodhull ran for president in 1872.

Geraldine Ferraro was the first woman on a Democratic party ticket, yes. That is not the same thing as being the first woman “on a U.S. presidential ticket.” Check out this list of other women who ran for president of the U.S. including Bella Abzug, Shirley Chisholm, Pat Schroeder, and Sonia Johnson. Clearly, only two parties count: Democrats and Republicans.Victoria Woodhull didn’t run on a “major” party ticket. Ah well.


  1. I wish more people knew that. Too big of a deal is being made over Hillary. Next time someone says something like this to me, I’ll tell them that she isn’t even the first woman to run for president, which wont shut them up, just make me feel better 🙂

  2. LS, Thanks for being one of the few to remember! … In case the future prez and former diss subject remains of interest, see 10 A. 07 issue of _Advocate_ and feel clever for having said much of this years ago. ~Sash
