Woodhull’s Equal Rights Party nominated abolitionist leader Frederick Douglass as her running mate. On paper, it was an impressive pick, but not really: Douglas never accepted the nomination or even acknowledged the campaign. In fact, he actually gave stump speeches for incumbent President Ulysses Grant. President Ulysses Grant. Although Woodhull failed to make it onto the presidential ballot, her bold campaign paved the way for the women who followed her.
