Editorial Reviews

Review

"Elizabeth Cady Stanton is undoubtedly a central figure in nineteenth-century American history. Her autobiography, and her career, express in uniquely feminist perspective some of the era's central themes, including the struggles for equal rights and individual autonomy. This powerfully written book is essential reading for anyone who would understand not only the origins of the women's rights movements, but the nature of American society in Stanton's era." University -- Eric Foner, Columbia University

Few autobiographies are able to retrieve a world we have lost. Even fewer have the power to evoke the greatness of their subject. Elizabeth Cady Stanton's Eighty Years and More does both and much more -- Joyce Appleby, University of California at Los Angeles --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Reading the book not only helped me to understand the political and legal environment for women during Ms. Stanton's life, but also helped me to understand Ms. Stanton as a person and her inner drive for equality. Her narrative provides us with stories to illustrate her passion for justice and her perservance in working toward the woman's vote. We get a picture of the territories and the states during those early times as she stuggles to get to places by means that would seem alien to us now.
Ms. Stanton demonstrates that her partnership with Susan B. Anthony was inevitable as their strengths complimented each other to help them fulfill their work toward equality. Although neither women lived to see the amendment pass, there are no signs of regret for all the years of dedication. We know she knows it will happen. Through her reality, we share the frustrations, the angers, the joys, and the triumphs.
I liked knowing Ms. Stanton had written the book and feel I got to know her courage, wit, and character by reading it. I highly recommend the book.

This is one of the most interesting books I've ever read. Stanton was a 19th century women's rights activist who had a complex, rationalist personal theology that changed and evolved thoughout her lifetime. This book reveals this theology, her weaknesses, and her. Recomendo este livro altamente!!!!!!

It's amazing to hear the voice of a woman one century before my time, 1.5 centuries before present day put voice to many of the same sentiments I have had as a little girl and as an adult.
Strides have been made but many of the social issues are still the same!

I gave the book 5 stars for its clear voice of the infancy of the feminist movement. Her prose can be adorably stuffy. She seems no doubt a formidable woman.

I admit I couldn't read in one sitting. Some chapters lagged. But take a break. Finishing the memoir is well worth the 80 year journey

In my pursuit of facts about Elizabeth Cady Stanton for a historical fiction novel I am writing, accurate accounts of the events of her life are critical. Though the word choice is old-fashioned, it adds to my own understanding of how one would explain the events in the 1800s and early 1900s. Her recollection of childhood activities is charming and surprising. I could not write my story without "her"! Great historical memoir on its own merit, too.

As I try to learn more about feminism and the almost impossible odds the great women who went before my wife as leaders in the fight for gender equality, this book makes me as a man more appreciative of what they did and how great they were. I bow in awe before these women and others who stand for rightness against the many forms of bigotry!

It's amazing to hear the dignity and strength in this woman's voice. Her journey was a powerful and important one. Reading this is not only a fascinating and intimate look into an essential slice of history, but also an excellent reminder of what the fight for equality is truly about at its core.
