In the rotunda of the nation´s Capital a statue pays homage to three famous 19th-century American women suffragists: Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, and Lucretia Mott. ´´Historically´´, the inscription beneath the marble statue notes, ´´these three stand unique and peerless.´´ In fact, the statue has a glaring omission: Lucy Stone. A pivotal leader in the fight for both abolition and gender equality, her achievements marked the beginning of the women´s rights movement and helped to lay the groundwork for the eventual winning of women´s suffrage. Yet, today most Americans have never heard of Lucy Stone. Sally McMillen sets out to address this significant historical oversight in this engaging biography. Exploring her extraordinary life and the role she played in crafting a more just society, McMillen restores Lucy Stone to her rightful place at the center of the 19th-century women´s rights movement. Raised in a middle-class Massachusetts farm family, Stone became convinced at an early age that education was key to women´s independence and selfhood, and went on to attend the Oberlin Collegiate Institute. When she graduated in 1847 as one of the first women in the US to earn a college degree, she was drawn into the public sector as an activist and quickly became one of the most famous orators of her day. Lecturing on anti-slavery and women´s rights, she was instrumental in organizing and speaking at several annual national woman´s rights conventions throughout the 1850s. She played a critical role in the organization and leadership of the American Equal Rights Association during the Civil War, and, in 1869, cofounded the American Woman Suffrage Association, one of two national women´s rights organizations that fought for women´s right to vote. 1.

In the quiet town of Seneca Falls, New York, over the course of two days in July 1848, a small group of women and men, led by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott, held a convention that would launch the woman´s rights movement and change the course of history. The implications of that remarkable convention would be felt around the world - and indeed are still being felt today. In Seneca Falls and the Origins of the Woman´s Rights Movement, the latest contribution to Oxford´s acclaimed Pivotal Moments in American History series, Sally McMillen unpacks, for the first time, the full significance of that revolutionary convention and the enormous changes it produced. The book covers 50 years of women´s activism, from 1840 to 1890, focusing on four extraordinary figures: Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucy Stone, and Susan B. Anthony. McMillen tells the stories of their lives, how they came to take up the cause of women´s rights, the astonishing advances they made during their lifetimes, and the lasting and transformative effects of the work they did. At the convention, they asserted full equality with men, argued for greater legal rights, greater professional and education opportunities, and the right to vote - ideas considered wildly radical at the time. Indeed, looking back at the convention two years later, Anthony called it ´´the grandest and greatest reform of all time - and destined to be thus regarded by the future historian.´´ In this lively and warmly written study, Sally McMillen may well be the future historian Anthony was hoping to find. A vibrant portrait of a major turning point in American women´s history, and in human history, this book is essential for anyone wishing to fully understand the origins of the woman´s rights movement.The ´´Pivotal Moments in American History” series seeks to unite the old and the new history, combining the insights and techniques of recent historiography with the power of... 1.
