Mrs. Stanton's Bible / Edition 1 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Cornell University Press
In 1895, she collaboratively authored this biblical exegesis, just as the women's movement was becoming more conservative. Stanton found herself arguing not only against male clergy members but also against devout female suffragists. Kathi Kern demonstrates that the Woman's Bible itself played a fundamental role in the movement's new conservatism because it sparked Stanton's censure and the elimination of her fellow radicals from the National American Woman Suffrage Association. Mrs. Stanton's Bible dramatically portrays this crucial chapter of women's history and facilitates the understanding of one of the movement's most controversial texts.

About the Author
What People are Saying About This
"In Mrs. Stanton's Bible, Kathi Kern does not back away from the embarassing evidence of Elizabeth Stanton's racist and classist prejudices but demonstrates how her subject's religious views helped shape those values. This masterful and timely book will remedy significant deficiencies in our historical knowledge."
"This very important book promises a much needed corrective to previous work portraying Elizabeth Cady Stanton as a commited secularist. Through responsible research and a fresh, original perspective, Kathi Kern provides us access to a substantial feminist critique of Christianity by a towering nineteenth-century intellectual."
