This book is about Victoria Woodhull
"A Woman for President: The Story of Victoria Woodhull" by Kathleen Krull, published in 2006, uncovers the remarkable narrative of Victoria Woodhull, a trailblazer in the fight for gender equality and voting rights. Despite the limitations placed on women in 1872, Woodhull emerged as the first female presidential candidate, stock exchange member, newspaper owner, and congressional speaker. Rising from humble beginnings, Victoria transformed her life through sheer tenacity and a unique connection to the spirit world that helped her advise financial magnates like Cornelius Vanderbilt. This pioneering woman not only amassed wealth but also utilized her resources to battle societal norms, founding her newspaper and the Equal Rights Party to advance her presidential campaign. Aimed at elementary school readers, this book is an inspirational exploration of how one woman's audacity to defy the status quo altered the course of American political and social history. Engaging and richly illustrated, it serves as a perfect educational tool to discuss the electoral process and the importance of persistence in overcoming injustices.
