Remembering "The First Lady of Wall Street," Muriel Siebert

Remembering First Lady of Wall Street Muriel Siebert

Muriel Siebert certainly made her mark on American history. In 1967, after having her application rejected nine times, she succeeded in becoming the first woman to buy a seat on the New York Stock Exchange.
