Victoria Claflin Woodhull portrait  Save
Description: Reproduction of a portrait depicting Victoria Claflin Woodhull from Homer, Ohio. Woodhull was one of the most controversial women of the 19th century. Rejecting conventional women's roles, she toured the country speaking on such topics as women's rights and social reform for women. In 1871, she testified before Congress in an attempt to gain women's rights through the citizenship guarantees of the 14th and 15th amendments. When Congress denied her claims, Woodhull decided to run for president of the United States the following year as the Equal Rights Party Candidate. She and her sister Tennessee Claflin became the first women to own and operate a brokerage firm on Wall Street, and also published a newspaper titled "Woodhull and Claflin's Weekly." Woodhull was at the center of many scandals and eventually even the most radical members of the woman's rights movement tried to distance themselves from her. She moved to England in 1877 and later married an Englishman. She died in 1927. View on Ohio Memory.

Women's Crusade photograph  Save
Description: Large group of men and several women gathered outside of Family Groceries in Waynesville, Ohio, during the Women's Temperance Crusade of 1873-1874. The women were protesting the sale of alcoholic beverages. The Temperance movement was an organized effort during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries to limit or outlaw the consumption and production of alcoholic beverages in the United States. In 1874, a group of Cleveland women established the Women's Christian Temperance Union. This organization pressured the Ohio and federal governments to implement Prohibition, which would outlaw the production, sale, and consumption of alcohol. From the mid 1870s to the early 1890s, the WCTU was the major organization within the United States seeking Prohibition. Its members utilized rather extreme tactics to convince Americans to abstain from alcohol. Members picketed bars and saloons, prayed for the souls of the bar patrons, and also tried to block the entryways of establishments that sold liquor. By the 1890s, groups such as the American Anti-Saloon League had joined the Women's Christian Temperance Union in its push for Prohibition. View on Ohio Memory.
