Ferrarro, Geraldine Anne

Ferrarro, Geraldine Anne (b. Newburgh, N.Y., 26 August 1935) In 1974 Ferrarro opened a law practice in New York City, and later entered politics as a Democrat. After serving in Congress (1979–84), she became the first woman nominated for vice-president, in 1984. Her ticket lost in a landslide, and even failed to win a majority of women’s votes. She was defeated in a bid for the Senate in 1992.
