In the 1984 presidential election, the Democratic candidate Walter Mondale chose a female running mate, Geraldine Ferraro. Ferraro was the first woman to run for national political office for a major party. While Ferraro became a popular figure on the campaign trail and a symbol of pride for women’s rights activists, the team lost to Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush in a landslide.
