UNT hosts Teaching of History Conference Sept. 16

August 17, 2006 UNT News Service

Department of History to host Teaching of History Conference on Sept. 16

DENTON (UNT), Texas -- She worked tirelessly for women's causes for 50 years, from 1851 to the early 1900s. She was a co-founder of the National Woman Suffrage Association and served as its first president. She was largely responsible for introducing a constitutional amendment for woman suffrage, which eventually became law as the 19th Amendment.

This may sound like a description of Susan B. Anthony, but it's actually facts about another, lesser-known activist for women's causes in the 19th and early 20th centuries -- Elizabeth Cady Stanton.

Stanton is one of 10 historical figures who will be discussed during the University of North Texas' annual Teaching of History Conference on Sept. 16 (Saturday).
