Elizabeth Cady Stanton - Solitude of Self 1892 Address Before Congress
Astonishing that back in the day when Elizabeth Cady Stanton lived that a Woman would be granted an audience to speak before Congress. In researching ideas for my Blog this morning, I stumbled upon this reading of her "Solitude of Self" speech.
There are no words for happy it made me to see her speak in terms of People being INDIVIDUALS all through the speech a concept that runs all throughout my Book, "Yes, I'd Like to Thank the Academy: How to Tame the Red Carpet in YOUR Office."
It is not a History Book.
It is present-day commentary on the discrimination I faced as a Female Insurance Agent trying to HELP PEOPLE with their ObamaCARE.
In it, I present SOLUTIONS to the problem of Discrimination OF ALL KINDS.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton was a Philosopher whose revolutionary ideas on Equality were met with mixed emotions, particularly her notions on Women's standing in the Church as seen in "The Women's Bible."
In her "Solitude of Self" address to Congress, she was given extraordinary access to address the Male Politicians in Congress, all in the day when Women were still considered second-class citizens & could not even Vote.
Stanton compares the "Solitude of Self" to the suffering of Jesus as he died on the Cross & how each INDIVIDUAL must Bear their Cross alone.
Equally as astonishing that in the year 1892, Stanton would be complaining about the "News."
For YEARS I've been a fan of Documentaries of any kind where I could find them while Channel Surfing. The Gloom & Doom of the "News" just gets to be too much. "How many car crashes happened overnight?" How many murders?" "How many Covid-19 related deaths did we have?"
I had to "LOL" when I heard this as a part of her speech.
All of a sudden I've got "Lots of Love" for this speech.
This really made my day.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton didn't live to see Ratification of the 19th Amendment, let alone the Equal Rights Amendment which is still languishing in Washington pending Ratification THIS YEAR.
