Thirty years ago, Geraldine Ferraro became the first woman to run for vice president for a major political party. She made headlines, but she stands among a surprising number of women who have run for the United States highest offices. Yes, they’ve run for the Surprise Party, for the Socialist Equality Party, for the People’s Party; but that was only because they were rarely recognized by the parties that count. All this may change in the very near future. Isn’t it about time that women were running the country? Read about a few women who have tried. (Lee C.)
