Biographical Text

Stanton was a women’s rights advocate who organized the first women’s rights convention. Along with Susan B. Anthony, she traveled the country holding more conventions. In 1869 she founded the National Woman Suffrage Association, holding the position of president until 1892. She helped compose the first three volumes of the six-volume History of Woman Suffrage. Unfortunately, she died before seeing her goal of female enfranchisement realized with the 19th Amendment in 1920.
