The Women You Didn't Know Ran for US President
Earlier this week President Barack Obama made history designating a national monument by the iconic National Woman's Party headquarters where members of the Party led the struggle for women's equality, publishing more than 600 pieces of federal, state, and local legislation in support of equal rights.
"I want young boys and girls to come here 10, 20, 100 years from now to know that women fought for equality. It wasn't just given to them. I want them to come here and be astonished that there was ever a time when women could not vote, that there was ever a time where a woman never sat in the Oval Office," he said while officially announcing the Belmont-Paul Women's Equality National Monument.
But if we trace back through the history books, there were three women who blazed a trail in American politics in an effort to break the highest glass ceiling of them all: president.
