Elizabeth Cady Stanton

    Elizabeth Cady Staton I would like to study Elizabeth Cady Stanton because she was a women’s rights activist. She is also is a feminist, editor and writer too. I also like to write too. She was born on November 12, 1812 in Jamestown, New York and died on October 26, 1902. The reason I would like to study her is because I would like to learn what she did to change our world.






Elizabeth Cady Stanton had a sad life because her father always looked up to her brother. He would say, If only you were a boy”. That made Elizabeth disappointed.  She became an abolitionist and she made laws equal for men and women. Elizabeth tried hard and never gave up and this is the story of Elizabeth Cady Stanton. 

Elizabeth Cady Stanton was born on November 12, 1815 in Johnstown, New York she was the 3rd oldest out of 6 people her father Daniel Stanton was a lawyer and a judge her mother worked at home. Her life was mostly sad because her brother died and he was the only boy in the family and he was very close to her father’s heart. He was so disappointed about what happened and that’s why every time her father took her to the cemetery with him she would just jump on his grave and tear up. 

When she was a child she went to an academy and learned Greek. Elizabeth won a bible for knowing the most Greek. She went to school to show her father that she was better than any boy. Then she became interested in women’s rights and became an abolitionist.

When she was all done in the morning picking fruits and vegetables she would go next to practice Greek with Pastor Hosack.  She then graduated from the Troy Female Seminary then she became interested in women’s rights.  Next she did her job of being an abolitionist and a women’s right activist.

Elizabeth became an abolitionist she moved to Seneca Falls with her husband Henry Stanton.  They met up when Elizabeth went to her cousin, Libby her father was talking to him.  Henry went on a lot of business trips he went on so many he wasn’t even home when her 7 kids were born.  She got married got married to Henry Stanton in 1840 and Elizabeth then finished school in 1833.  Then she met up with a lady that was an abolitionist she was also a women’s rights activist and her name was Susan B. Anthony. In 1892 Elizabeth spoke to the United States Congress so she wrote amendments that said women should have the right to vote. Then it was passed that. On October 25, 1920 she wrote to Theodore Roosevelt and asked him if she would help gain power to give women the right to vote. Then she died the next day. The first women’s rights convention was on July 19, 1848 that is when she had her convention in Seneca Falls.

And therefore that is the life and story of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and what she did for the world if we didn’t have her women would be able to have equal rights like men do. When she was all done in the morning picking fruits and vegetables she would go next to practice Greek with Pastor Hosack

She sounds interesting. I think it makes you think without her and people like her women wouldn't be able to do a number of things. Women couldn't vote, or go to school.
