Happy 200th Birthday Elizabeth Cady Stanton!

One of the women instrumental in the women's fight for the right to vote was Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Stanton was born on this day in 1815, in Johnstown, New York; she died in 1902.

For adult readers we have Not for Ourselves Alone: The Story of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony: An Illustrated History, by Geoffrey C. Ward [920 WAR].

There are many more books for children written about Stanton Stone, here are three:

Fritz, Jean. You Want Women to Vote, Lizzie Stanton? [J B STA]

McCully, Emily Arnold. The Ballot box Battle. [J B STA]

Tanya Lee. Elizabeth Leads the Way: Elizabeth Cady Stanton and the Right to Vote. [J B STA]

It's hard to find a better role model for girls than this woman who was born two hundred years ago. She was a woman who spoke her mind and made a difference!
