Although I live in central New York and served for a time of the Elizabeth Cady Stanton Foundation, I learned things about her that I never knew by reading this book. Griffin does a masterful job of making Stanton come alive out of the shadow of Susan B. Anthony with whom she is always coupled. Stanton had a much more varied and public life with her foray into the issue of religion and the subjugation of women. This book gives you a greater respect for this iconic figure. ( )
