    Description

    Woman's Suffrage: Elizabeth Cady Stanton Carte de Visite. Elizabeth Cady vowed to fill the void in her family left by the death of her brother. She worked hard to obtain the finest education available to her at Troy Female Seminary. When she married abolitionist Henry Brewster Stanton in 1840, she had already observed enough about the legal relationships between men and women to insist that the word "obey" be dropped from the ceremony. With Lucretia Mott, she founded the famous 1848 Women's Rights Convention held at Seneca Falls, New York, and drafted the convention's Declaration of Sentiments. Stanton is often remembered in connection with her friend and fellow reformer Susan B. Anthony. Offered here is a superb half-length portrait carte de visite, likely from the late 1870s. Measures 2.5" x 4" and, with very mild toning, in excellent condition.
