Award-winning author Penny Colman talks about her research, writing process, and the life lessons she learned from Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony and their unbreakable friendship that lasted 51 years. It was a friendship that fueled and sustained the 19th-century fight for women’s rights, a fight they relentlessly waged despite fierce opposition, daunting conditions, scandalous entanglements, and betrayal by friends and allies.

“Penny Colman has brilliantly captured the partnership between my great-great-grandmother Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony,” says Coline Jenkins, President of the Elizabeth Cady Stanton Trust.
