Item description for Solitude of Self by Elizabeth Cady Stanton...
Elizabeth Cady Stanton believed this to be the most important speech of her lifetime. With gorgeous and direct language, she presents a compassionate appeal for human equality and dignity, and she addresses the place of solitude in the lives of women and men. Solitude of Self joins the canon of classic American speeches. Elizabeth Cady Stanton's timeless appeal presents the historical convergence between the 19th and the 21st centuries. In this last speech, Stanton proves that while many rights have been gained over the past century, inequality and degradation of the soul continue to thrive. For those opposed to the "glass ceilings" covering our culture, Solitude of Self will be a perfect gift of inspiration and comfort.

Solitude of Self Mar 8, 2007
Elizabeth Cady Stanton's speech embodies my philosophy, my theology and the definition of my own personal sovereignty. Every woman, indeed every person, should read it.
