Editorial Reviews

Charles McGrath
....[W]armth and cantankerous humor come out strongly in this biography. -- The New York Times Books of the Century
From the Publisher
"A superbly readable and historically accurate account of perhaps the most audaciously intelligent American woman in nineteenth-century America. It's the best Stanton biography we're likely to see."—The Women's Review of Books

"Griffith's biography brings to life a remarkable personality who had the courage and drive both to pioneer a new role and to stake out the new intellectual territory needed to sustain it."—Harvard Law Review

"A well-rounded biography that does full justice to this truly extraordinary woman."—The New York Times

"A well-rounded biography that does full justice to this truly extraordinary woman."—The New York Times

"At last there's a biography of Stanton worthy of its subject. Like Stanton herself, the book is feisty, intelligent, articulate...full of the concrete reality of this feminist heroine's life."—Betty Friedan
