  • Version 1: The text available in this dataset is generated from the pages in the By the People Campaign, "Elizabeth Cady Stanton Papers." Suffrage was an important but not singular goal for Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902). Since childhood, she rebelled against the role assigned to women and chafed at being denied a university education because of her gender. As a young woman, she became involved in the temperance and antislavery movements, through which she met abolitionist reformer and journalist Henry Brewster Stanton (1805-1887). They married in May 1840. While honeymooning in England, Stanton became outraged when she and other women were barred from a major antislavery convention. The incident spurred her and Lucretia Mott (1793-1880), a Quaker minister from Pennsylvania and one of the American delegates to the London meeting, to organize a women's rights convention. The event took place in July 1848 in Seneca Falls, New York and is considered by many as the beginning of the American woman suffrage movement. There Stanton put forth her daring Declaration of Sentiments, including the then-radical demand for women's voting rights, a goal that would consume the women's movement for more than seventy years. This campaign includes Stanton's correspondence, speeches, and other writings. Elizabeth Cady Stanton Papers consists of 3456 images of digitized content from the Elizabeth Cady Stanton Papers collection. The dataset includes transcriptions and data for these 3456 pages.
