Elizabeth Cady Stanton, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Elizabeth Cady Stanton (November 12, 1815 – October 26, 1902) was a social activist, and a leading figure of the early women's rights movement in the United States. With her husband, Henry Stanton and cousin, Gerrit Smith, Elizabeth Cady Stanton was also active in the anti-slavery Abolitionist movement. Stanton had a strong friendship with abolitionist and former slave Frederick Douglass.

Elizabeth Cady met Henry Brewster Stanton through her early involvement in the temperance and the abolition movements. Henry Stanton was a journalist, an antislavery orator, and, after their marriage, became an attorney. Despite Daniel Cady's reservations, the couple were married in 1840 and had seven carefully spaced children. Cady Stanton loved motherhood and assumed primary responsibility for rearing the children. She was remembered by her daughter Margaret as cheerful, sunny and indulgent. Stanton took her husband's surname as part of her own, signing herself Elizabeth Cady Stanton or E. Cady Stanton, but refused to be addressed as Mrs. Henry B. Stanton. Feeling that women were individual persons, she asserted that "(t)he custom of calling women Mrs. John This and Mrs. Tom That and colored men Sambo and Zip Coon, is founded on the principle that white men are lords of all."
