Chisholm is best-known for her election as the first Black woman to the House of Representatives in 1968, and for her groundbreaking campaign for the presidency which she launched in 1972. In that campaign, she asserted herself as the first Black candidate to run for a major party nomination, and the first woman to run for the Democratic nomination. Although she is best remembered for the cultural impact of her congressional and presidential campaigns, the causes and reforms she championed along the way are just as important.
