Reading: Elizabeth Cady Stanton

I recently picked up a lovely biography of Elizabeth Cady Stanton by Vivian Gornick from my local library branch. The book is titled The Solitude of Self. I wanted to include here one of my favorite quotes:

“No matter how much women prefer to lean, to be protected and supported, nor how much men desire to have them do so, they must make the voyage of life alone, and for safety in an emergency they must know something of the laws of navigation.”
