Before Clinton, efforts to shatter the 'Highest Glass Ceiling'

Hosted by

Hillary Clinton won’t be the last woman to run for president, and she’s not the first – she’s not even the tenth or the hundredth. Most women who ran for president never had a chance, but a handful made it further than the rest and paved the way for Clinton. Three of them – Victoria Woodhull, Margaret Chase Smith, and Shirley Chisholm – are profiled in a new book titled The Highest Glass Ceiling: Women's Quest for the American Presidency, written by University of New Hampshire historian Ellen Fitzpatrick.
