Abstract

American suffragists and women’s right activists, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony first met in 1851. They spent the next five decades fighting for equal rights for women in marriage, politics, and the workplace. In May 1869, Stanton (b. 1815) and Anthony (b. 1820) split with the American Equal Rights Association (AERA), and set up the National Woman Suffrage Association. This was a protest against the AERA’s acceptance of the Fourteenth Amendment, which extended voting rights to only all ‘male’ citizens. Throughout their careers, Stanton and Anthony agitated for change, taking up the cause of various marginalised women. Here is the beginning of Stanton’s speech of May 1869, given at an organised protest against the murder trial decision in favour of Daniel McFarland.
