*UPDATED – Now with Links!*

This will be short since I’m a day behind, but I’ll update it with some links at a later date. Our second fabulous woman in history is the suffragette, abolitionist, women’s rights firebrand, and all around badass Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Perhaps no other person was as influential in launching the women’s rights and suffrage movement in the United States. Stanton helped organize the first national convention on women’s rights at Seneca Falls, NY and wrote the Declaration of Principles that resulted. There’s an interesting piece about her work on The Woman’s Bible here. You can get the Woman’s Bible for free for the Kindle or in other formats.
