The winner of the Dorothy Every Time Smurf Girl trophy for Excellence in Female Stuff:

Today is a day for one of my fellow EliSZabeths (that's the name of our club) Elizabeth Cady Stanton. One great thing about the Internet is that you can read almost every book written before 1900. Here are a few of the things she wrote while advocating for women's rights and abolition.

Eighty Years and More: Reminiscences 1815-1897 by Elizabeth Cady Stanton

History of Woman Suffrage edited by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan Brownell Anthony

The Woman's Bible by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and the Revising Committee.

This is a two minute biography, but there is also a Ken Burns documentary on Netflix Instant about Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. Here's another video on suffrage, that unfortunately forgot to mention ECS, but still rocks.
