Praise for Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, A Friendship that Changed the World


“I laughed and cried, felt anger and anguish, but mostly I felt blessed that I now know this story and that it has been told. I am amazed that you could weave so much information, so clearly into the narrative. Many of the questions I’ve had about why Elizabeth or Susan made the choice they did have now been answered.”
Molly Murphy MacGregor, Executive Director and Cofounder National Women’s History Project

“This book is an eye-opening read and a reminder of where we have been and just how far we have come.”
VOYA

“Thoughtful portrayal of two complex women . . . invaluable addition”
Kirkus Review

“Fascinating. It is chilling how much we take for granted today.”
Melissa Rosati, host 31Voices

“Positively riveting to read! I could hardly put it down, but nevertheless, made myself read only a small amount each day so as to extend the pleasure as long as possible. That is my hallmark of an excellent read—along with an urge to re-open the book and start reading it all over again.
Laurel Haynes, Knoxville, Tennessee
