Summary

In this subtly crafted biography, the historian Lori D. Ginzberg narrates the life of the founding philosopher of the American movement for women's rights, a woman of great charm, enormous appetite, and extraordinary intellectual gifts. Here, Elizabeth Cady Stanton comes across as larger than life, driven by her commitment to rouse herself, and everyone else, to rethink and remake women's status in politics, law, religion, and marriage. In her own time she was a dangerous radical, a force to be reckoned with and a household name. At once critical and admiring, Ginzberg captures Stanton's ambiguous place in her own community of reformers and intellectuals, describes how she changed the world, and reveals how Stanton's legacy has shaped American feminism in significant and complex ways.
