In this 2021 Inauguration special Anne Marie talks to Dr. Teri Finneman about Victoria Woodhull, first woman to run for the office of President of the United States in 1872. Dr. Finneman reaches to the shadows of history to raise this erased-from-history woman and event into the light once again. On the eve of Inauguration Day we talk about the momentousness of the American people voting the first female Vice President into office 149 years after Victoria Woodhull ran for president.
Dr. Teri Finneman is a journalism professor at the University of Kansas and a former political reporter. She is executive producer of the Journalism History podcast and author of Press Portrayals of Women Politicians, 1870s-2000s.
