Victoria Woodhull

Artful Dodger has just linked me to another article about Victoria Woodhull. It relates how, like most feminists (look at the life histories of Jane Fonda, Vanessa Redgrave, Gloria Steinem, Simone de Beauvoir, etc), she got all her ideas from the men she slept with. Also like them, her business enterprises were invariably financed by men. Yep.

Also, “Her participation in the [National Woman Suffrage Association] convention allowed critics to conclude that women’s suffrage would lead to pernicious free love and the breakdown of the family.” The blogger does not appear to have noticed that they were absolutely right. Well, maybe he thinks it’s a good thing.
