Biography of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, 19th-Century Feminist and Intellectual

Few American women loom as large as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, arguably the foremost feminist intellectual of the nineteenth century. Yet although the traditional narrative of the movement for woman's rights has been transformed over the past three decades, and life stories of leading activists have been written, there has been no serious biography of Stanton for twenty years. Benefitting from new scholarship in women's history and feminist political theory, and my own scholarly engagement with questions of political identity and reform activism, this biography will use Stanton's life story as a window through which to view, and reshape, the narrative of nineteenth-century feminism and American intellectual life itself.
