People listened to her. A congressional committee reported on her interpretation of the Fourteenth and Fifteenth amendments. She was the first woman to run for president of the United States and the first presidential candidate to spend election day in jail. America's Victoria is a biography of this enigmatic figure in American history, the daughter of a swindling father and a spiritualist mother, who remade herself several times to become a Wall Street broker, a radical reformer, and, with her third husband, a British lady of the manor. The story is told by a narrator, several commentators, and readings from Woodhull s speeches and contemporary documents. --The American Journal of History<br/><br/>Victoria Woodhull was a fascinating woman, way ahead of her time, an advocate not only of women's suffrage but of legalized prostitution, equality in marriage, and free love, by which she meant a commitment untrammeled by governmental regulations. She ran for president four times and generally lived a life imagined by most women (and men) of her day. She is described as electrifying, larger than life, and flamboyant. Recommended for Women's Studies collections. --Library Journal
