Overview

Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902) devoted her life to the cause of advancing the political, legal, and social standing of women, and she became the women's rights movement's most eloquent spokesperson. Her autobiography records as much about the cause as it does about her personal life.

Stanton vividly describes momentous occasions of the women's rights movement such as organizing the Seneca Falls (New York) Convention in the summer of 1848, and also gives her views on theology, marriage, and divorce, as well as reminiscences of her parents, husband, and seven children. Two chapters are devoted to Susan B. Anthony, and there are many anecdotes about Lucretia Mott, Matilda Joslyn Gage, and other leading feminists of the day.

This account of history in the making displays Stanton's unflagging, exuberant optimism and her determination that the noble goal to which she had dedicated her life would someday be accomplished. This unabridged edition is enhanced with an introduction by Denise M. Marshall, trustee of the Elizabeth Cady Stanton Foundation, Seneca Falls, New York.
