从年轻时,斯坦顿就知道女孩无法享有跟男孩一样的权利或机会。斯坦顿就读于一所男女同校的约翰斯顿学院 (Johnston Academy) ,后来她写道「她是数学及语言高级班中唯一的女生。」她无法进入大学继续进修,因为她是个女孩子,所以她只好就读于爱玛威拉德特洛伊女子学院 (Emma Willard's Troy Female Seminary) ;斯坦顿坚信个人权利,如投票权或工作权 (只要您的资格符合该工作的要求) 。斯坦顿的父亲是个法官,她跟着父亲一起研读法律,但却无法开业,因为 (您没猜错) 她是个女人。有了这些过往经历,您认为是什么原因促使斯坦顿努力为女权奋斗呢?

From a young age, Elizabeth Cady Stanton learned that girls didn't have the same rights or opportunities as boys. Stanton went to Johnston Academy, a co-ed school. She later wrote that she was "the only girl in the higher classes of mathematics and the languages." She wasn't allowed to go to college because she was a girl, so instead she studied at Emma Willard's Troy Female Seminary. Stanton was a firm believer in individual rights, such as the right to vote or the right to have any job for which you are qualified. Stanton's father was a judge. She read law with him but wasn't allowed to practice because, you guessed it, she was a woman. After all this, what do you think inspired Stanton to fight for women's rights?
