“If it were not for this dead lady, women would not be writing books about other women, or have a say in society.” I hacked a bibliography of Elizabeth Cady Stanton that was co-written by both a man and woman. About 150 years later a book was published glorifying a feminist fighting for what she thought was necessary even when no one was at her side. Without Stanton and her fight for women’s rights in the 1860’s, the 19th Amendment would never have been ratified. If the 19th Amendment was never ratified, who knows what our nation would be based upon today. Elizabeth Cady Stanton jump-started the feminist movement in the 1800’s, and us females have her to thank for taking charge against authority back when that was unheard of.
