Read full description of the books:
History of Woman Suffrage was produced by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Matilda Joslyn Gage and Ida Husted Harper in six volumes from 1881 to 1922. It was a history of the suffrage movement, primarily in the United States.
The first three volumes were composed in a blaze of inspiration from 1876 to the 1880s, as Anthony and Stanton realized that the earliest pioneers of the women's movement were passing on or would soon be. They are filled with recollections from such pioneering spirits as Lucretia Mott, Clarina I. H. Nichols and Ernestine Rose, as well as each of the co-authors.
The latter three volumes were more records-keeping in nature. They were compiled periodically over the next 35 years as the suffrage movement inched closer to its goal of a constitutional amendment granting women the right to vote. Anthony's protege Ida Harper edited these volumes, which appeared in 1902 (Volume 4) and 1922 (Volumes 5 and 6). Anthony died in 1906.
The authors write in the introduction: "We hope the contribution we have made may enable some other hand in the future to write a more complete history of the most momentous reform that has yet been launched on the world—the first organized protest against the injustice which has brooded over the character and destiny of one-half the human race."

Read information about the authorElizabeth Cady Stanton was an American social activist and leading figure of the early woman's movement. Her Declaration of Sentiments, presented at the first women's rights convention held in 1848 in Seneca Falls, New York, is often credited with initiating the first organized woman's rights and woman's suffrage movements in the United States.
Before Stanton narrowed her political focus almost exclusively to women's rights, she was an active abolitionist together with her husband, Henry Brewster Stanton and cousin, Gerrit Smith. Unlike many of those involved in the women's rights movement, Stanton addressed a number of issues pertaining to women beyond voting rights. Her concerns included women's parental and custody rights, property rights, employment and income rights, divorce laws, the economic health of the family, and birth control. She was also an outspoken supporter of the 19th-century temperance movement.
After the American Civil War, Stanton's commitment to female suffrage caused a schism in the women's rights movement when she, along with Susan B. Anthony, declined to support passage of the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution. She opposed giving added legal protection and voting rights to African American men while continuing to deny women, black and white, the same rights. Her position on this issue, together with her thoughts on organized Christianity and women's issues beyond voting rights, led to the formation of two separate women's rights organizations that were finally rejoined, with Stanton as president of the joint organization, approximately twenty years later.
