Jill Norgren talked about her book Belva Lockwood: The Woman Who Would Be President, published by New York University Press. Belva Lockwood was the first woman to run a full presidential campaign in 1884. She would run again in 1888 to demonstrate that women could compete with men in the political arena. She campaigned on a platform of women’s suffrage. Belva Lockwood was also the first woman to practice at the bar of the Supreme Court in 1879.

Ms. Norgren was joined in discussion by commentators John Ferren and Wendy W. Williams. Introductory remarks were made by the U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The event was co-sponsored by the National Women’s History Museum, the National Women’s Law Center and the George Washington University Women’s Studies Program. close
