Combining primary documents with interpretive essays, this is the only book that traces the relationship and political development of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. The volume makes these two great American women accessible to the present-day reader by letting the subjects speak for themselves in their own powerful and memorable voices.
In her new introduction, Ellen Carol DuBois considers the current historiographical perspective on Stanton and Anthony, observing changes in emphasis that have occurred in interpretations of their place in feminism over the years. The revised edition also features phrenological portriats from the 1850s and letters between Stanton and Anthony from 1894 to 1902.
The documents delineate the progress of American reform politics. They move from Stanton's speech at Seneca Falls in 1848 through the pre-Civil War period and Reconstruction, tracing the early development of the concept of women's rights. They cover the post-Reconstruction period, emphasizing the growing conflict between the two women as Anthony moved to unify disparate women's organizations around the cause of woman suffrage while Stanton called for more widespread reform. In material new to the revised edition, they trace the new set of problems with which the two women grappled, including race. Each section is introduced by an essay in which DuBois provides historical background and offers insightful interpretation of the primary documents that follow.

Ellen Carol DuBois is Professor of History at UCLA. Gerda Lerner is Robinson Edwards Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin.Review:
Praise for the previous edition: Ellen DuBois... is wonderfully present throughout the book. Her critical commentary, filled with useful Civil War and suffrage history, is vivid and interesting, her interpretation of personality and event engaged, alive. But it is in the way DuBois has chosen and positioned the letters and speeches that one feels most strongly the intelligent love she bears Stanton and Anthony -- Vivian Gornick, The New York Times Book Review
