A Heritage Costumes Exclusive.
Women and young girls today have many women who came before them to thank for the freedoms, the rights, and the privileges that presently exist. From the first women to participate in politics to the suffragists of the 19th century to the activists of more recent decades, the women’s rights movement has seen many different lives—and one of the women who started it all was Elizabeth Cady Stanton. As the leading figure of the early women’s rights movement during the 1800s, Stanton was the first to fight fiercely for women to have rights equal to those of men.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton was first and foremost a proponent of women’s rights, but she was also a social activist, an abolitionist, and a suffragist. It was the abolitionist movement that in fact gave Stanton an interest in social activism. Along with her husband, Henry Brewster Stanton, she fought for the abolition of all slavery in the United States. Yet Stanton chose to narrow her political focus and aim to achieve women’s rights soon after becoming politically active. Elizabeth Cady Stanton created the Declaration of Sentiments, which was presented at the Seneca Falls Convention of 1848 and became the spark that ignited an organized women’s rights and women’s suffrage movement throughout the country. From 1892 to 1900, Stanton served as president of the National Woman Suffrage Association and worked with other feminists including Susan B. Anthony and Lucretia Mott.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton was something of an outspoken feminist during the early women’s rights movement. While many other women focused their energy solely on suffrage, Stanton fought for a number of women’s issues beyond the vote: women’s parental and custody rights, property rights, employment and income rights, the right to divorce, and access to birth control. Together with Susan B. Anthony, Stanton divided the women's rights movement in two when the women decided to deny support for the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution. Stanton and Anthony opposed giving legal protection and voting rights to African American men; the women wanted women of every race, as well as men of every race, to all be granted those rights. Though this caused division, it didn’t detract from the movement as Elizabeth Cady Stanton helped forge the path towards the right to vote.
