Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton Corner


Description

37 Park Row, near City Hall in lower Manhattan, where the building once stood that housed the editorial office of the two pioneering women who were the driving force behind the women`s rights movement… Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton.After forging separate fights for women`s rights, temperance, and anti-slavery programs, Anthony and Stanton joined forces in 1851, and went on to become the most powerful team in women`s history, ultimately forming the National Woman Suffrage Association in 1869.From 1868 to 1870, this dynamic duo edited and published their women`s rights newspaper – The Revolution – from that 37 Park Row office. According to reports, each day, Stanton walked up and down the steps from her office to the printer at 37 Park Row, carrying articles for the weekly publication. Imagine if THOSE walls still stood and could talk?In 2003, women`s historian, political consultant, and life-long activist Pam Elam proposed a street sign honoring them near that site
