March is Women's History Month.

And  since our offices are across from the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) (ICE) - Get Report , we thought we'd showcase on the women that have made their mark on the exchanges.

Last week you met, Muriel Siebert, the first woman to have a seat on the NYSE in 1967, but way before that, there were other women rocking wall street.

So this week meet Victoria Woodhull. She and her sister were the first female stockbrokers on Wall St. and they actually opened their own brokerage firm.

That was back in 1870.

But and you can only imagine the sensationalism that was created around "women" actually having jobs back then.  But that didn't stop them. Woodhull went on to complete many more "firsts" and paved the way for so many women.

So watch our video and learn her story.

And definitely stay tuned to TheStreet for more  #AlphaInspire stories from the women who have conquered Wall Street.
