SHERRY L. SMITH Southern Methodist University KATHI KERN. Stanton's Bible

SHERRY L. Stanton's Bible. Ithaca: Cornell University Press. Stanton initially worked within the intellectual ambit of positivism but then shifted to freethought.

Title: Mrs. Dr. Kathi Kern, a historian at the University of Kentucky, offers a good look at an important catalyst in the development of the woman suffrage movement. Publisher: Ithaca: Cornell University Press, 2002. The writing of The Woman's Bible played a fundamental role in the movement's transition to a new conservatism.

In Mrs. Stanton's Bible, Kathi Kern argues that Stanton's association with the project "had the ironic effect of diminishing her historical stature" among other, less controversial, suffragists. It may also have delayed the 19th Amendment, since Stanton's Bible was quoted by antisuffragists as an example of the inherent dangers of permitting women a public voice. Kern's book about the Woman's Bible is incisive, well written and long overdue.

Mrs. My only regret is that we have not more experience in book-making, Stanton wrote. Yet, she seemed to regret much more. The work had been painstaking. Published by: Cornell University Press. By the time Elizabeth Cady Stanton completed her autobiography, she had for all practical purposes retired from public appearances. At the age of eighty-three, she authored her memoir and compiled the second volume of her controversialWoman’s Bible, bringing the total number of books published since her eightieth birthday to three.

How we measure 'reads'. Looking at recent views of Stanton's seemingly disparate theologian, politician, and racist-Kern contends that splintering Stanton's work among academic disciplines and reading her writing through the lens of thinking about race and sexuality gain us very little. Stanton's Bible traces the impact of Elizabeth Cady Stanton's religious dissent on the suffrage movement at the turn of the century and presents the first book-length reading of her radical text, the Woman's Bible.

She was not wrong, back then. This book, written back in the late 19th Century by Elisabeth Cady Stanton, the leader and founder of The Women's Movement, is absolutely a must read for anyone interested on the continuous effect of the Old and New Testament Bible's view on women as an equal to men. This was a daring and extraordinary exploration that answers many questions about the female's inheritance of the historically servile and submissive role in western society. Ithaca, NY: Cornell University Press, 2001. Stanton, Elizabeth Cady. Amherst, NY: Prometheus Books; Great Minds Series, 1999. Stanton, Elizabeth et a. ed. "History of Woman Suffrage," vol. 4, 1902.

Mrs. Stanton's Bible traces the impact of Elizabeth Cady Stanton's religious dissent on the suffrage movement at the turn of the century and presents the first book-length reading of her radical text, the Woman's Bible. Stanton is best remembered for organizing the Seneca Falls convention at which she first called for women's right to vote. Yet she spent the last two decades of her life working for another cause: women's liberation from religious oppression. Stanton came to believe that political enfranchisement was meaningless without the systematic dismantling of the church's stifling authority over women's lives.

In 1895, she collaboratively authored this biblical exegesis, just as the women's movement was becoming more conservative. Stanton found herself arguing not only against male clergy members but also against devout female suffragists. Kathi Kern demonstrates that the Woman's Bible itself played a fundamental role in the movement's new conservatism because it sparked Stanton's censure and the elimination of her fellow radicals from the National American Woman Suffrage Association. Mrs. Stanton's Bible dramatically portrays this crucial chapter of women's history and facilitates the understanding of one of the movement's most controversial texts.
