  • From feminist sisters of the mid 19th Century come the first hand experiences of ordinary women who day by day and year by year accomplished for future daughters and granddaughters the right to vote, the right to hold property, the right to inherit, and the right to parent children after a divorce.Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B Anthony, and a myriad of lesser known womenFrom feminist sisters of the mid 19th Century come the first hand experiences of ordinary women who day by day and year by year accomplished for future daughters and granddaughters the right to vote, the right to hold property, the right to inherit, and the right to parent children after a divorce.Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B Anthony, and a myriad of lesser known women of the times write their autobiographical experiences of the often threatening, always challenging era of accomplishing equal rights for women We see Stanton s commitment to provide focus to the movement through her gift of oratory and writing while raising seven children We are privileged to glimpse the friendship between Anthony and Stanton even in times of strong disagreement about the objectives of the Movement And finally, we hear from the lesser known women the many sacrifices made to accomplish equal rights for generations to come.In the first volume of six we hear the accounts of women such as Sojourner Truth, who called the suffragist movement to account for its exclusion of African American women We hear through the voices of women present in the first women s congresses the prices paid within their families and communities when they rallied for equality.Stanton and Anthony wanted in their later years to insure an accurate perspective on the events of this tumultous time Rather than write a simple history from the experiences of two they invited the words of all whose efforts had chipped away steadily at the wall of resistance to change These volumes give us the rare opportunity to hear and understand the feminist movement in its infancy as herstory rather than history written years after the events.
