From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Geraldine Anne Ferraro (born August 26, 1935) was a politician from New York who, while serving in the United States House of Representatives, received the nomination of the Democratic Party to run for Vice President of the United States in 1984.

Ferraro was the first woman to be so nominated on a major party ticket. She and fellow Democrat Walter Mondale were defeated in a landslide by the re-election campaign of President Ronald Reagan and Vice President George H. W. Bush in the 1984 election.
