Victoria Woodhull
When Woodhull was just 34 years old, she decided to run for President — a whopping 50 years before women even had the right to vote. 

While a presidential run was significant, her accomplishments didn't end there. With the help of Cornelius Vanderbilt, the railway magnate, Woodhull and her sister became the first female stockbrokers on Wall Street and opened their own firm. While newspapers and cartoons snickered at the fact petticoats were invading the market, the two quickly proved they were among equals — one trade led to a profit of $700,000, or about $13 million today!
