In 1964, Margaret Chase Smith sought the Republican presidental nomination. Over her eight years in the House and fifteen years in the Senate, Smith had become a well-known figure.
She never referred to herself as a "feminist;" however, she was interested in various issues that affected women.
By running for president, Smith claimed she was, "pioneering the way for women of the future." She did not receive the 1964 nomination.
