Quick Overview

In 1872, Victoria Woodhull ran for President against Ulysses S. Grant on the Equal Rights Party ticket. Her platform included women’s suffrage and many other much-needed social reforms, but also included the inflammatory issue of free love and equality between the sexes, which caused her to be branded “Mrs. Satan.” Today, more than 130 years later, most of the issues considered controversial then are still hot topics.
