Although I live in central New York and served for a time of the Elizabeth Cady Stanton Foundation, I learned things about her that I never knew by reading this book. Griffin does a masterful job of making Stanton come alive out of the shadow of Susan B. Anthony with whom she is always coupled. Stanton had a much more varied and public life with her foray into the issue of religion and the subjugation of women. This book gives you a greater respect for this iconic figure.

I am a high school sophomore and I read this book for a research project. I thought this book wasn't very good. This book focused more on the people in her life like her mother and her friends rather than Elizabeth herself. This book was also very confusing at times. It discusses the many conventions and lectures Elizabeth took part in and I found it very hard to follow along. This book was also very boring, too. There is one chapter that provides information about Elizabeth's husband's views on the Civil War and that part seemed to go on for forever. I didn't see the need for the book to go into detail about her husband when the book is about Elizabeth. However, some parts of the book were actually very interesting to read. I enjoyed reading the chapters about her childhood and her friendship with Susan B. Anthony. It expresses how close Elizabeth was to Susan and how their friendship was very important to the both of them. Overall, this book was okay. It wasn't a very hard book to read, but there are some parts that get confusing. I think there are better books to read about Elizabeth Cady Stanton.
