The Selected Papers of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony
An Awful Hush, 1895 to 1906eBook - 2013
Volume 6, An Awful Hush, is about reformers trained "in the school of anti-slavery" trying to practice their craft in the age of Jim Crow and a new American Empire. It recounts new challenges to "an aristocracy of sex," whether among bishops of the Episcopal church, voters in California, or trustees of the University of Rochester. And it sends last messages about woman suffrage. As Stanton wrote to Theodore Roosevelt on the day before she died, "Surely there is no greater monopoly than that of all men, in denying to all women a voice in the laws they are compelled to obey."
