The Exposer

Victoria Woodhull, an advocate of free love, and hater of Beecher’s hypocrisy: “Yes, I am a Free Lover. I have an inalienable, constitutional and natural right to love whom I may, to love as long or as short a period as I can; to change that love every day if I please, and with that right neither you nor any law you can frame have any right to interfere.” It was Woodhull who revealed Beecher’s perfidy to the public. She was also the first woman candidate for presidency of the United States.
