Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Mother of the Women's Rights Movement
I found it very interesting that Elizabeth Cady Stanton began her career of Political Activism as an Abolitionist who worked feverishly for the passage of the 13th Amendment granting Freedom for Slaves both here in America & Abroad.
Like Politics of today when Bills are presented for a Vote, whether Congressional or Senate, sometimes a Bill goes too far – or in some cases, not far enough.
We now know, that unless clearly specified, the verbiage of a Bill can be grounds for a glaring omission. Conversely it can also be widely interpreted to give Carte Blanch free license to run rough-shod over the intent of the Law.
For example: when a clearly guilty person gets off on a technicality or Legal Loophole such as “If the glove don’t fit, you must acquit.”
We also see Partisan Politics being played in the present day 2020 with good solid pieces of Legislation coming out of the Democrat-held Congress languishing on the Desk of the Senate Majority Leader in the Republican Senate.

It would appear that Women’s Rights & Civil Rights have gone hand in hand from the beginning of American History. Both of these important issues have pretty much been omitted from the History books.
In the present day 2020 great strides are being made to rectify these situations.
