Title

Broadside : The Woman's Bible. Editor Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Carrie Chapman Catt, President of the National Suffrage Association, one of the revising committee. [Circa 1920-1925]

Description

Anti-suffrage commentary focused on The Woman's Bible and the anti-Christian beliefs of suffragists. The author pulls direct quotes from The Woman's Bible.

From the Library of Congress:
In 1895, Elizabeth Cady Stanton published the first edition of "The Woman's Bible," an attempt to amplify, explain, and redefine scriptural references pertaining to women in the basis that these were often used as a rationale to deny women particular rights and privileges. The work was undertaken by a committee and involved searching the both Old and New Testaments for references to women, cutting them out, and then pasting them on blank pages in a book. Then commentaries were added beneath the quotations.

In 1898, "The Woman's Bible" was reprinted, including the addition of a 20-page pamphlet entitled, "Bible and Church Degrade Woman," which contained three essays by Stanton that further explained her position on women in religion. This is one of those essays.
