Victoria Claflin Woodhull wasn’t one to be easily forgotten by those who met her during her life and the same is true for those of us who meet her now. She is an unsung National hero who was at the forefront of the early woman’s rights and suffrage movement and she was a charismatic social reformer who fearlessly challenged the status quo.
This website is intended to be a resource for anyone from serious scholars to the mildly curious. The biographies and timelines have been created exclusively through the use of primary and contemporary sources rather than relying upon her problematic biographies. The topics pages, which will be greatly expanded as we move forward, are and will be written by scholars noted in the field under discussion.
We welcome any constructive commentary as well as well-researched submissions of essays topical to Woodhull and her sister, Tennessee Claflin. Submissions will be reviewed by an editorial board composed of Woodhull scholars and historians prior to publication.
