Welcome to this day in history class from how stuff works dot Com and from the desk of stuff you missed in history class. It's the show where we explore the past one day at a time with a quick look at what happened today in history. Hello and welcome to the PODCAST. I'm Tracy Wilson it September Twenty Third Victoria woodhull was born on this day in eighteen thirty eight. She was the first woman to run for president in the United States fifty years before the ratification of the nineteenth amendment eighty women the right to vote nationwide she was from Ohio named Victoria Claflin after Queen Victoria her family also called her little queen because she was very proud and she Had An uncanny ability to concentrate her family background was also a little odd her father buck Claflin had a whole range of jobs and schemes to try to make money. He decided to take advantage of the growing interest in spiritualism and to set Victoria and her sister Tennessee up as mediums to have them travel around as a sort of spiritualist medicine show they had varied and chequered career as spiritualists and mediums Victoria got married. In the middle of all this, and that's where she got the last name woodhall she eventually though divorced him and married someone else and kept the last name Woodhall, which was highly scandalous in eighteen, sixty eight, a purported vision lead would and her family to move to New York City where she and her sister continued to work as clairvoyance. One of their clients was Commodore Cornelius. Vanderbilt who gave them investment advice which worked out Very well for them later on, he financially backed the two you sisters opening up their own brokerage firm which made them the first women stockbrokers on Wall Street. This made a lot of money would hole was finally able to do something. She had wanted to do for a long time which was to focus on social reform really hard as a woman to be a social reformer unless you also had money to support your work. In April of eighteen seventy started publishing a series of articles in the New York? Herald including one where she announced her candidacy for the presidency. It was expected that Republican. President Ulysses s grant was going to run for reelection. She knew she was not at all likely to earn the Democrats nomination. So to run for president, she would need to nominate herself and get enough support to make it onto the ballot. So she bought a newspaper the newspaper obviously endorsed her candidacy. She also moved to Washington DC and started working as lobbyists and she befriended Congressman Benjamin Butler together. The two of them worked out this argument that there needs to be a constitutional amendment giving women. The right to vote that women already did have the right to vote under the fourteenth and fifteenth amendments. She was allowed to deliver that argument before Congress on January eleventh eighteen seventy one making her the first woman to do so although suffrage ists were very interested in hull and she was invited to join the National Woman Suffrage Association Women's suffrage wasn't really her key political issue. She was a lot more focused on education reform and assistance for the poor and reforms of marriage laws so that men and women were equal partners something that was described at the time as free love is not at all the free live of the hippies. She gave a speech about this free love idea on November twentieth of eighteen seventy one in this absolutely tanked her candidacy. It was viewed as too radical and immoral, and she was widely denounced most of the separatists cut ties with her only the most radical stayed by her side and helped her found the equal rights party which nominated her for president in eighteen seventy two also nominating Frederick Douglass President though he declined that nomination at this point though things were really falling apart. For Victoria, Woodhall, all the controversy lost her clients on Wall Street and her stockbroker business failed and. She lost all of her many. Then she tried to stop a big scandal with her sister involving Catharine, beecher and Harriet, Beecher Stowe, and their brother. This didn't get them anything positive Victoria and Tennessee wound up being arrested for distributing indecent material through the mail. So on election day they were in jail. That's a pretty unspectacular end of the campaign for the first woman to run for president, and there is some debate about whether her candidacy even really counts. The constitution requires presidents to be at least thirty, five years of age and Woodhall turn. Seventy five on September. Twenty third eighteen, seventy three, which was nearly ten months after the election and six months after inauguration day of Eighteen, seventy three.

I'm Joe Richmond will we see a woman elected president of the United States during our lifetime, perhaps not so wild, a dream. The world is changing, rapidly, politics changed with it. Many of the wants impossible. Things have happened. A record. Number of women are running for congress in the midterm elections, this November there, two hundred and fifty seven dwarfing all previous years in two thousand twenty will likely see a record number of women running for president as well. It's a historic moment for women candidates. What many people don't know is that over the years, there have actually been more than thirty five women who have run for president today on the show, we have three stories of women who launched longshot bits president of the United States. The I was almost one hundred fifty years ago before women could even vote. Victoria Woodhall was many things a clairvoyant businesswoman an advocate for women's rights and sexual freedom, and a magnet for media attention and scandal and in eighteen seventy two would hold, became the first woman in American history to run for president. My name is Scott Claflin and I am a descendant of Victoria Claflin Woodhall. The first time I began to become aware of my relative was in nineteen sixty four. When the Republican Senator Margaret chase Smith was winning president, I'd states. Photographers, Ryan, her traditional roles looking very happy and very pleased about the whole thing. They were talking about history being made with Margaret chase Smith being the first woman to run for president. We're watching my dad said, that's not right. These guys don't know what they're talking about. My name is Amanda friskin and I wrote the book. Victoria would whole sexual revolution. Woodhall came from an unusual family, the class wins. She grew up in a small town in Ohio, but they moved a lot kind of traveling, salesman catches catch can. And at the age of fourteen would hold, was married off by her parents to a man who proved to be an hallock and she had a pretty hard life with him. She was traveling around when she said she had a revelation to go out there and declare her right to be a woman in public and to be a powerful woman. And so she packed up and came to New York. This was an era where a woman could not vote, could not enter a restaurant a store and establishment of any kind unless she was escorted by a man. It was controversial for women to do anything, but she had the foresight not to accept the way society was. She started a radical newspaper. She opened the first women's stockbrokerage firm, but the thing that gave her national fame was when she sent a card to the New York herald declaring her candidacy for the presidency letter to the New York herald. April second, eighteen seventy one. I claim the right to speak for the uninformed sized woman of the country and announce myself as a candidate for the presidency for a woman at that moment to be running for president when most women in the country couldn't even cast a ballot made this a pretty extreme act. If the men should see the women going to the polls in the nineteenth century, lots of women were making claims about women's rights. You might think that women's suffrage Just's turn to Woodhall and some of them did, but the suffrage is- in the eighteen seventies tended to be middle class to upper middle class. Women more conventional more serious. Woodhall was really an outsider, not well educated rather uncouth, and some of them just thought, choose insane. All the men should frown on us when going to the polls. The thing that really made Woodhall notorious was when she gave a speech in New York City on November twentieth eighteen seventy one entitled the principles of social freedom in that speech. She claimed marriage was a form of tyranny for women. It is high time that your sisters and daughters should no longer be led to the alter like sheep to the shambles. The sexual relation must be rescued from this insidious form of slavery. I protest you wish became a woman held out said, do you believe in free love? And she said, yes, I believe in free love. Yes, I am a free lover. I have an inalienable constitutional and natural right to love whom I may to change that love every day. If I please and neither you nor any law, you can frame have any right to interfere. She was really just making a rhetorical point in the middle of. A much more complicated speech, but that's one that everyone put in the paper. It became known as her free love speech. It gave her instant national fame but not necessarily the kind that she had hoped for.

We are coming up on the one hundred eightieth birthday of Victoria Woodhull who was born on September twenty third eighteen thirty eight. She ran for president of the United States before the nineteenth amendment prohibited denying citizens the right to vote because of their sex. This episode is from twenty eleven. It is much requested in it is from prior hosts, Sarah and the blame him. Enjoy. Welcome to stuff you missed in history class from how stuff works dot com. Hello and welcome to the podcast. I'm to blame charcoal boarding and I'm doughty and we are barely right along through a mystery. So far we've covered a couple of women a pirate leader and a warrior Queen, for example, who both made a name for themselves by fighting against the establishment in this episode, however, we're going to take a look at one who sought to become part of the establishment and kind of effect change from within kind of the biggest part of the establishment exactly in by that. We mean we're about to talk about Victoria would hole the first woman to run for president of the United States. Yeah, and her bid for the presidency was really remarkable, and that's not just because it happened almost fifty years before women even have the right to vote the legal right to vote. It was miraculous Kush. She had this really sketchy Pash. She basically came out of nowhere. The previous entry on her resume before presidential candidate was clairvoyant. That's something you're unlikely to see. And in a couple years, she became the leading voice. In the women's rights movement. So a remarkable biography. Yeah, you could probably do an entire series on just all the details of her really unconventional turbulent. Sometimes kooky downright kooky life, but we're mostly going to focus on the meteoric rise that led to her nomination for president. And of course, the scandal that caused it all to go horribly wrong and you'll see the it really makes today's nominees for the most part, not in all cases, but for the most part look pretty tame bland. Yeah, certainly their names, the names in this podcast are going to be great. I just wanna get you psyched up for that and you know by saying that she's exciting, we're not just talking about in terms of the scandal. Even her background is really fascinating and unique. So we'll get into that a little bit. I she was born Victoria Claflin on September twenty third eighteen thirty eight in Homer, Ohio, and her mom any Claflin named her after. The then eighteen year old Queen of England keeps popping up in Victoria. So Victoria Claflin was the fifth of seven living kids. And while she was growing up, her family had a lot of financial struggles. She didn't really let that get to her though. She was still very confident kid and she kind of held court on this with her family, no telling stories to the other kids, and she was really smart. She had a photographic memory and they're, you know, we we should mention too because this comes into play later that her intelligence was not educated intelligence. She'd she only went to school from ages eight to eleven. She was just a a smart quick learning kid. Yeah, and that's all that's all the school when she had the opportunity to get at the time we should say. But she was nicknamed little Queen because of her proud demeanour and her she would intensely concentrate on things. So people thought that was very Queen leg crooner just like Madam to pump door, very similar. Her. Bad, but Claflin was kind of a rascal who just hopped from job to job. I think he had something like a dozen jobs, but eventually his grand get rich scheme was to start calling two of his daughters, Victoria in Tennessee spiritual mediums and set them up as the traveling spiritualists medicine show, which sounds like a really off the wall idea. But it wasn't quite as out there as it seems because buck had heard about this other pair of sisters from New York, Kate and Margaret FOX, and they had earned huge amounts of money working as these traveling mediums. And there was, you know, at the time this growing interest in spiritualism, I think that's something that comes up in the podcast from time to time to in women were very important in that movement, partly because it gave them influence. If you're speaking is a medium, nobody is really holding you responsible for what you said. Not quite at least. So you know you could get away with some
