Elizabeth Cady Stanton, born in 1815, was an American suffragist, social activist, abolitionist, and leading figure of the early women's rights movement. Along with her friend Susan B. Anthony, Canton was one of the very prominent faces of Women's Movement in America. Her Declaration of Sentiments, presented at the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848 New York, is often credited with initiating the first organized women's rights and women's suffrage movements in USA. Unlike her contemporaries, Stanton was also interested in various other issues pertaining to women like their parental and custody rights, property rights, employment and income rights, divorce, the economic health of the family, and birth control until her death in 1905.
