Elizabeth Cady Stanton

a.k.a. Elizabeth (nee) Cady Stanton

Author Code: AECS

Born: Nov. 12, 1815 - Johnstown, New York, USA

Died: Oct. 26, 1902 - New York City, New York, USA

Educated at Johnstown Academy and Troy Female Seminary, Cady received her first taste of discrimination when she was not allowed to attend Union College in spite of academically outperforming men that were accepted. Her experiences at Troy eventually led to her rejection of organised religion and instead she adopted logic and ethics as a basis for her future behaviour. In 1840, she married Henry Brewster Stanton, a lawyer who was sympathetic to the women's rights cause. They both joined the American Anti-Slavery Society. In 1848, Stanton together with Lucretia Mott, organised the Women's Rights Convention at Seneca Falls, New York, the main resolution of which was to achieve the right to vote for women. IN 1866, Stanton, together with Mott, Susan B. Anthony and Lucy Stone established the American Equal Rights Association. Two years later with Anthony, she founded The Revolution, a political weekly magazine. In 1869, they formed the National Woman Suffrage Association, which would merge in 1890 with the American Woman Suffrage Association to form the powerful National American Woman Suffrage Association, with Stanton as its first president. Stanton also edited/compiled the first three volumes of the six-volume History of Woman Suffrage, working with Anthony and Matilda Gage. Initially against the passage of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, Stanton later argued that it did indeed give women the right to vote. In 1895, Stanton published The Woman's Bible, a very influential work. She was a prolific speaker and delivered some very powerful speeches during her career. Unfortunately, Stanton died in 1902, eighteen years before the right to vote was finally granted to women. Her other works include Solitude of Self (1892) and Eighty Years and More: Reminiscences (1898).
