Victoria Woodhull Martin

Victoria Woodhull Martin was an American political activist and campaigner for women's rights. She was the first female candidate for the presidency of the USA, standing for that office on five occasions. In the late-19th century she emigrated to Britain, married the banker Joseph Biddulph Martin and settled at Norton Park, Bredon's Norton, Worcestershire, where she made improvements to the grounds. There is a memorial to her in Tewkesbury Abbey.
