So I recently read a book called: Eighty Years and More; Reminiscences 1815-1897 it’s about Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s life. Mrs. Stanton (in case you don’t know) was a women’s suffrage movement leader and an influential woman. She lived from 1815-1902.
In the height of her women’s suffrage movements and at the end of the women’s suffrage, Elizabeth Cady Stanton traveled extensive amounts, which is quite amazing even in this time and day. Mrs. Stanton traveled to Europe multiple times, to the territories and to California. She was always with multiple bags (she brought pamphlets about women’s suffrage everywhere) and she almost always ended up helping someone she met. About halfway through one of her trips she held an impromptu speech at a train station because the passengers were delayed and had to wait over an hour for the next train. Often she traveled with one or two children and she often helped mothers who she met who were traveling with multiple children. Mrs. Stanton was a wonderful speaker, mother, wife, and woman. She is quite an inspiration to women and girls everywhere, even now, one hundred and fifteen years after her death.
