From the Back Cover:

In Her Own Right restores Elizabeth Cady Stanton to her true place in history. It traces Stanton from her privilege, unconventional childhood to her marriage to an abolitionist hero turned political opportunist ( with whom she had seven children), to her achievements as reformer, newspaper editor, popular lecturer, organization leader, and historian of woman's suffrage.

Review:


"A superbly readable and historically accurate account of perhaps the most audaciously intelligent American woman in nineteenth-century America. It's the best Stanton biography we're likely to see."--The Women's Review of Books


"Griffith's biography brings to life a remarkable personality who had the courage and drive both to pioneer a new role and to stake out the new intellectual territory needed to sustain it."--Harvard Law Review


"A well-rounded biography that does full justice to this truly extraordinary woman."--The New York Times


"At last there's a biography of Stanton worthy of its subject. Like Stanton herself, the book is feisty, intelligent, articulate...full of the concrete reality of this feminist heroine's life."--Betty Friedan


"Griffith's compelling biography of Elizabeth Cady Stanton takes a major step in restoring the controversial women's rights activist to her true place in history."--New Directions for Women


"Griffith's fine biography, combining careful scholarship with lively writing, splendidly restores this bold, intelligent, engaging woman to 20th-century America."--Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., The Graduate School and University Center, C.U.N.Y.


"This biography performs a great service: it chronicles the life of an important pioneer who had been relegated to obscurity for far too long."--Dr. Sally K. Ride


"Griffith has not only done an excellent job of portraying Elizabeth Cady Stanton's life in a lively, readable manner, but has also given us a reasonable explanation for Stanton's behavior."--Journal of the Early Republic


"Griffith's work illuminates both women's forgotten history, and their magnificent ability to stand in their own light."--The Washington Post


"Elisabeth Griffith's biography is...the best to date of Elizabeth Cady Stanton."--Ms. Magazine


"A valuable and needed contribution not only to biography but also to history and women's literature."--The San Francisco Chronicle


"Excellent biography: insightful, provocative in its portrayal of Stanton's thought, frustrations, and accomplishments."--James B. Crooks, University of North Florida, Jacksonville


"[An] absorbing biography [that] does full justice to Elizabeth Cady Stanton..."--The Wall Street Journal
