The other side of the split

Title

The other side of the split

Description

I’m spending so much time on the 1869 split because it reflects and anticipates so many activist conflicts since: over race and racism, over who gets to speak for whom, who has to wait their turn. #Suffrage100 #KnowYour19th

We’ve seen that ElizCadyStanton & Susan B Anthony were indignant about the 15th Amendment, and that Frederick Douglass & Frances Ellen Watkins Harper were in favor despite women’s exclusion. Who else was in the room where it happened?

Lucy Stone is best known today for being the first woman to insist on keeping her own name in marriage. As someone who would rather cut off my arm than change my name, I’ve always appreciated her.

Julia Ward Howe is best known for writing the Battle Hymn of the Republic (“Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord…”), the Union’s Civil War anthem. More tomorrow on what they said.
