Presented by Judith Dann, PhD, we will explore the life of Victoria Woodhull and the adversity she overcame to be the first woman U.S. Presidential candidate in 1872. We will discuss other “firsts” that this great lady from central Ohio achieved and will look at some of her ideological platforms. Reviled by some, revered by others, we will focus on popular perception of this controversial woman.
