Victoria Woodhull

Victoria Woodhull (September 23, 1838 – June 9, 1927), was an American leader of the women's suffrage movement. She ran for President of the United States in the 1872 election. An activist for women's rights and labor reforms, Woodhull was also an advocate of "free love", by which she meant the freedom to marry, divorce and bear children without social restriction or government interference. "They cannot roll back the rising tide of reform," she often said. "The world moves." She twice went from rags to riches, her first fortune being made on the road as a magnetic healer before she joined the spiritualist movement in the 1870s. This formal photographic portrait of Woodhull was taken by Mathew Brady around 1870.
