Overview

"Volume two of The Selected Papers of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony is a marvel. . . . Just about everything Anthony and Stanton have to say has some interest. What I particularly like about Selected Papers is that it can be dipped into for information or read consecutively as a fascinating biography of the two pioneering feminists."-National Women's Studies Association Journal

Against an Aristocracy of Sex, 1866 to 1873 is the second of six planned volumes of the Selected Papers of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. The entire collection documents the friendship and accomplishments of two of America's most important social and political reformers. Though neither Stanton nor Anthony lived to see passage of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920, each of them devoted fifty-five years to the cause of woman suffrage.

The second volume picks up the story of Stanton and Anthony at the end of 1866, when they launched their drive to make universal suffrage a priority of Reconstruction. Through letters, speeches, articles, and diaries, this volume recounts their years as editor and publisher of the weekly paper the Revolution, their extensive travels, and their lobbying with Congress. It touches on the bitter division that occurred among suffragists over such controversial topics as marriage and divorce, and a national debate over the citizenship of women under the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments. By the summer of 1873, when this volume ends, Anthony stood convicted of the federal crime of illegal voting. An irate Stanton warned, "I felt afresh the mockery of this boasted chivalry of man towards woman."

Ann Gordon is an associate research professor at Rutgers University. She is the editor of this six-volume series.
