Explain the collaboration between Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, and show how their skills complemented one another.


Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony are two of the most well-known and influential American suffragettes of the 19th century. They worked together for nearly 50 years to agitate for women's rights in the United States. Stanton was the legal theorist and visionary behind the movement, and Anthony was the practical organizer and lobbyist. Stanton wrote the Declaration of Sentiments in 1848, a statement of women's grievances and demands for rights. Anthony lobbied for laws to advance the cause and marshaled public support through her public speaking and media work. She was also the editor of the first women's rights weekly, The Revolution, which she and Stanton published together. Their collaboration was a perfect blend of Stanton's talents which focused on legal theory, political strategy, and vision, and Anthony’s ability to partner with organizations, state legislatures, and individuals. Their partnership was distinct from other collaboration models of the time because the two women were equal partners. Stanton and Anthony amplified each other's message, resulting in a powerful political force aimed at achieving women's rights. Together they formed a strong alliance that was able to stir up public opinion and persuade legislators to pass laws that provided more rights to women. As a result, they have earned a permanent place in history as two of the most influential advocates of women's rights.
