RIP, Geraldine Ferraro.

"I was constantly being asked, ‘Was it worth it?’ Of course it was worth it!" she wrote in "Framing a Life, A Family Memoir," published in 1998. "My candidacy was a benchmark moment for women. No matter what anyone thought of me personally, or of the Mondale-Ferraro ticket, my candidacy had flung open the last door barring equality — and that door led straight to the Oval Office."
