Brilliant, stubborn, and astonishingly far-sighted, Elizabeth Cady Stanton was the chief architect of the American women's movement. Here, Harriet Sigerman presents a fascinating profile of the woman who courageously campaigned for women's absolute right to social and political equality in the 1800s. Her stands on issues such as birth control, divorce reform, greater employment opportunities, and equal wages were revolutionary and controversial then and are still debated in the political arena today. Along with her tireless crusade for equal rights, Elizabeth Cady Stanton also raised seven children, authored a history of the women's rights movement, a feminist critique of the Bible, and her autobiography. Featuring never-before-seen photos and illustrations, Elizabeth Cady Stanton brings to life one of history's liveliest and most fascinating women's rights leaders.
From School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up-This inspiring biography of one of the most influential feminist reformers in 19th-century America is both interestingly written and easy to follow. Sigerman chronicles Stanton's life through careful scholarship, offering quotes from her personal memoirs, letters, and autobiography while highlighting the social influences of her struggle to win the vote for women. A good portion of the book details Stanton's friendship and teamwork with fellow suffragist Susan B. Anthony. Black-and-white photographs and original documents add greatly to the appeal of this resource. A good purchase for both school and public libraries.
