Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Accepting the view that man was prior in the creation, some Scriptural writers say that as the woman was of the man, therefore, her position should be one of subjection. Grant it, then as the historical fact is reversed in our day, and the man is now of the woman, shall his place be one of subjection?
Stanton quotes
All honor to the noble women that have devoted earnest lives to the intellectual needs of mankind!
In entering upon the great work before us, we anticipate no small amount of misconception, misrepresentation, and ridicule; but we shall use every instrumentality within our power to effect our object.

Stanton Elizabeth Cady quotes
Susan had an earnest soul, a conscience tending to morbidity.
