Excellent book. A must have! Sept. 18 2012
By ThrillCozby - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book proves without a doubt that Victoria Woodhull Martin, the first female banker, first woman to run for president and feminist pioneer was the person who popularized Eugenics and forced sterilization first rather than Francis Galton. Galton was given credit because he came from the prestigious Darwin family and because he coined the term Eugenics but Woodhull was pushing the ideology before it was named Eugenics. The author uses newspaper articles that you can look up in the archives to prove his points. If you need proof of first wave feminism's love affair with negative eugenics look no further.

Lady Eugenist Victoria Woodhull Nov. 9 2006
By I. Schneider - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book containing the actual speeches of Victoria Woodhull is a must read for women. It puts one in touch with the history of woman's suffrage in the US with the history of the amazing Victoria Woodhull.The speeches are interspersed with reviews by a man that are very right brained and male oriented and for that reason less interesting. Would have preferred a female critique.

In Her Own Words Aug. 12 2007
By Gail W. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The absolute best thing about this book is the complete copies of Victoria Woodhull's speeches. One cannot dispute the validity of her own words. I am fascinated by Victoria she seems to have disappeared from American History; when she was once very popular.
