My Interview with Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Transcript of My Interview with Elizabeth Cady Stanton
By Vickita King My childhood was very interesting. I had two sisters and three brothers. Two of my brothers died before I was born and my third brother died when he was in college. I was only 11 years old when he died. When and where were you born? I was born on November 12th, 1815 in Johnston, New York. Did you go to school? Yes, I went to the Johnston Academy
and I exceled in Greek, Latin and Math. Are you married? Yes, I got married to
Henry Stanton in 1840. Henry is an abolitionist. Our honeymoon was to the World Anti-Slavery Convention in London. What inspired you to be an advocate in women's rights? My cousin was an abolitionist so I got some of my strong feelings toward women's rights from him. When Henry and I went to the World's Anti-Slavery convention, the women there, including me, were refused permission to speak. Did anyone help you do something about women's rights? Yes, at the World Anti-Slavery Convention I met Lucretia Mott, who is a Quaker teacher who served in Anti-Slavery and women's rights organizations. In 1848 she helped me organize a Women's Rights Convention at Seneca Falls. Was it difficult to get your message across to other people? http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/USAWstanton.htm It was a struggle to change people's minds but we eventually got
the point across. In 1866, Lucretia Mott, Susan B. Anthony, Lucy Stone and I established the American Equal Rights Association.
Our ideas were rejected by polls. Bibliograpy Yes, In 1868, Susan and I established the political weekly named The Revolution. The following year, we made a new organization named the National Women Suffrage Association. Our organization condemend the fourteenth and fifteenth amendments. Did you make any other organizations with Susan B. Anthony? http://www.rochester.edu/SBA/womensfriendship.html http://www.nps.gov/wori/historyculture/elizabeth-cady-stanton.htm What do you think is the greatest accoplishment you have made so far? I think that my greatest accomplishment is that I've made people more aware about women's rights. What do you think you will be most remembered by? I think I will most be remembered by my strong will and being passionate about women's rights. Quote: "Let the girl be thoroughly developed in body and soul, not modeled, like a piece of clay, after some artificial specimen of humanity, with a body like some plate in Godey's book of fashion, and a mind after the type of Father Gregory's pattern daughters, loaded down with the traditions, proprieties, and sentimentalities of generations of silly mothers and grandmothers, but left free to be, to grow, to feel, to think, to act." I think that this quote means
that people should let women be who they want to be and to be treated as equally as men are treated. I also think that this quote means that girls should have the power to think for themselves and not be someone that they are not. I chose this quote because I think it is really powerful and it shows me that you do not have to be someone that everyone expects you to be.
