The renegade queen

Image of item
She was a child clairvoyant, a free lover, a revolutionary publisher, a female stockbroker, and a committed communist. She counted among her friends--and myriad enemies--millionaires, senators, preachers, philosophers, and prostitutes. She fell into a torrid love affair with a half-socialist, half-anarchist Civil War hero who gave everything for her cause. She demanded suffrage for all people, running for President of the United States with escaped slave Frederick Douglass as her running mate--fifty years before women gained the right to vote. And yet, Victoria Woodhull has been written out of history. Discover the unlikely story of this forgotten feminist, whose rural Ohio childhood of poverty and exploitation drove her into a career of political activism and an all-consuming romance in New York City. With a supporting cast that includes her rival Susan B. Anthony, her benefactor Commodore Vanderbilt, and dozens of colorful and scandalous figures of the Reconstruction period, The Renegade Queen brings to life one of the most charismatic women in American history.
