Victoria Woodhull

Victoria Woodhull, sometime between 1866 and 1873.

Constitutionally, the President of the USA must be at least 35 years old. Victoria Woodhull was only 34 when she was nominated by the newly formed Equal Rights Party in 1872 so, though she was the first woman to stand for the office, some historians claim that she shouldn’t be counted as she wouldn’t have been legally allowed to take office.
