Women For Freedom # 34 Victoria Woodhull

On May 10, 1872, Victoria Woodhull became the first female candidate for US President.

She was implacably opposed to government control of the individual, saying,”I shall not change my course because those who assume to be better than I desire it.”

She was a libertarian when it came to sexual morality: “I am a free lover. I have an inalienable, constitutional and natural right to love whom I may, to love as long or short a period as I can; to change that love every day if I please.”
