How Could You NOT Love Victorial Woodhull?

Victoria Woodhull

Perhaps if Victoria California Claflin’s (1838-1927) first marriage to Canning Woodhull had gone better (he was an alcoholic, womanizer), things would have been different and she wouldn’t be known today as the first woman to run for President in 1872, but what fun would that be? She and her sister started their own weekly paper, Woodhull & Claflin’s Weekly in 1870. During its six years of publication, she advocated “sex
education, free love, women’s suffrage, short skirts, spiritualism, vegetarianism, and licensed prostitution,” but it was best known for printing Marx’s Communist Manifesto.

She is credited by some as convincing Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton that women were already citizens based on the 14th and 15th Amendment and simply needed to vote. The same year she was nominated for President by the newly formed Equal Rights Party, she published a lurid story about Henry Ward Beecher, a well-known minister at the time who railed against Woodhull’s “free love” philosophy. Unfortunately for him, Woodhull’s GIRLFRIEND, Cady Stanton was told by Theodore Tilton that Beecher was having an affair with this wife (she confessed to her husband)! “Beecher stood trial for adultery in an 1875
legal proceeding that proved to be one of the most sensational legal episodes of the era, holding the attention of hundreds of thousands of Americans. The verdict was ultimately a hung jury.” source:  Wikipedia – READ MORE
