Overview

Their Place Inside the Body-Politic, 1887 to 1895 closes with Elizabeth Cady Stanton's grand, eightieth birthday party at the Metropolitan Opera House. Susan B. Anthony, just five years younger, shared the stage with her. Despite their age, these pioneers maintained positions of leadership in an international reform movement increasingly dominated by younger people. It was not easy, but the papers of Stanton and Anthony from the years 1887 to 1895 offer evidence of the suffrage movement's transformation into a political body.
The volume opens just after the U.S. Senate voted against a constitutional amendment for woman suffrage. Defeat in that arena did not end suffragists' focus on Washington: the National Woman Suffrage Association convened the International Council of Women there in 1888; Stanton delivered her famous speech "The Solitude of Self" on Capitol Hill in 1892. But rejection of a federal amendment stirred interest in winning women's right to vote by the action of states. Southerners pressed for national resources to organize their states. Wyoming gained statehood with woman suffrage in 1890, and for the first time anywhere, voters in Colorado approved votes for women in 1893. Elsewhere hard work was met with failure. Anthony returned to grueling fieldwork in a South Dakota campaign of 1890, and she helped campaigns in Kansas and New York in 1894. Though Stanton preferred to lead by writing from the comfort of home, she too joined the New York campaign. Early in 1895, she began to publish the commentaries that would become her Woman's Bible.
