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?
