Women by Office: City or Town Superintendent of Schools

Women campaigned for, or were elected to, at least 60 different political offices on the local, state, and federal level. In 1855 two women, Marietta Patrick and Lydia Hall were elected to the School Board of Ashfield, Massachusetts. They were perhaps the first U.S. women to be elected to political office. 1866 Elizabeth Cady Stanton declared herself a candidate for Congress, the first woman to announce her intention to run for a federal office. By the end of the 1870s over 100 women had run for office at all levels.
