Susan B Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton

So closely interwoven have been our lives, our purposes, and experiences that, separated, we have a feeling of incompleteness –united, such strength of self-association that no ordinary obstacles, difficulties, or dangers ever appear to us insurmountable.                                        –Elizabeth Cady Stanton

Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony were arguably the founders of the modern women’s movement in the United States. This is a quote from Stanton about her friendship with Anthony.

Found in the book, 365 Reflections on Love and Friendship, publ. Adams Media Corporation, 1998.
