In 1872, Woodhull ran for President of the United States. While many historians and authors agree that Woodhull was the first woman to run for President of the United States, some have questioned that priority given issues with the legality of her run. They disagree with classifying it as a true candidacy because she was younger than the constitutionally mandated age of 35. However, election coverage by contemporary newspapers does not suggest age was a significant issue. The presidential inauguration was in March 1873. Woodhull's 35th birthday was in September 1873.
An activist for women's rights and labor reforms, Woodhull was also an advocate of being able to freely love whom you choose, with the nobility of free love, by which she meant the freedom to marry, divorce, and bear children without government interference. #firstfemalepresidentialcandidate#firstfemaletorunforpresident#freelove#devilwoman#womenshistorymonth
Oldie but goodie.. can you figure it out?
How to get into the #devilwoman pose.. In this video I show you step-by-step how to come into the pose called Devil woman that was inspired by @kathrynbudig and @amyippoliti -
1⃣ start standing and create a figure 4 position by crossing your ankle over the opposite knee. Take the ankle a little higher than the figure 4 but not quite as high as a half lotus.
2⃣ Forward bend over the legs. Take the arm that corresponds with the bent leg. (So if your right leg is crossed over the left ankle, use your right arm.) Try to get the shin snug into your armpit and then take the arm behind the standing leg so that the elbow joint is locked in with your knee joint (this alignment of elbow and knee joint is important) If you look in the video I'm pulling my arm to make sure it's snug.
3⃣ Take the free arm (corresponds to standing leg) and reach it out to the side to set up your base. Bend the standing knee and come to the outer age of the standing foot, so that you can lower down to keep their hands parallel for the base.
4⃣ Take the gaze forward, pull your heart forward, point the toes and lift both legs.
5⃣ Tag me and let me see your progress!!!! #devilwoman#armbalance#yogahowto
