Tour Guide Tell All

Elizabeth Cady Stanton (19th Amendment Anniversary Special)

August 6, 2020

“Susan B. Anthony is who everyone rallies around, and that's who, the memory of her, is so big in 1920...In 1923,  the 75th anniversary of the Seneca Falls convention, there's a commemorative event there and the only person who gets up to speak about Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the woman who made it happen and who wrote the Declaration of Sentiments is her own daughter.  She is the only person who would go and speak on her behalf.  That is so heartbreaking to me."

In honor of the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment this month, Tour Guide Tell All is turning its attention to women's suffrage and the almost century-long fight for women to get the vote in the United States.  We're kicking off our suffrage series by looking at a woman whose contributions to the movement are substantial - Elizabeth Cady Stanton.  We'll dive into the groundwork that she laid for the 19th century suffrage fight, her relationship with Susan B. Anthony, her complicated and controversial stances, and why perhaps she doesn't have the name recognition or fame today as some of her peers.
