Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony: Correspondence, Writings & Speeches by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Ellen Carol DuBois, Gerder Lerner



"Ellen DuBois . . . brings to this volume . . . her special insights as the Chief interpreter of post-Civil War feminism. . . . She has made Anthony and Stanton accessible to present-day readers, letting them speak for themselves and helping us to see them more clearly in a new light." -Gerda Lerner The history of American feminism is often identified with the Seneca Falls convention of 1848 and the demand for woman suffrage first voiced there. This is the first comprehensive survey of the historical contributions of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the organizer of the convention and the author of the demand for woman suffrage, and Susan B. Anthony, her co-worker of a half-century. Through the long years of their leadership, Stanton and Anthony insisted on the idea that to be free and equal, women must join together politically, to control the impact of law and government on their lives. Although the right to vote was won more than ninety years ago, current political conflicts-over the ERA and abortion-demonstrate the continued relevance of Stanton's and Anthony's political message for American women. Most of the twenty-one selections from the writings and speeches of Stanton and Anthony that appear here have never before been available to the general reader. Ellen DuBois has provided historical commentary for these materials. ELLEN DUBOIS is associate professor of history and American studies at the State University of New York at Buffalo, and is the author of Feminism and Suffrage.
