Elizabeth Cady Stanton (Birthday)
Join us in commemorating the birthday of Elizabeth Cady Staton (1st generation suffragists). She was born in 1815 and was one of the speakers and organizers of the Seneca Falls Convention. Elizabeth was a co-founder of the National Woman Suffrage Associate (NWSA), which would later merge with the American Woman Suffrage Association (AWSA) to form the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA) in 1890. After the ratification of the 19th Amendment, the NAWSA evolved into the League of Women Voters (LWV) in 1920.
