Commemorative issue
Progress of Women
Elizabeth Stanton, Carrie Chapman Catt, & Lucretia Mott

Elizabeth Stanton, Carrie Chapman Catt, and Lucretia Mott are shown on the commemorative stamp honoring American women.

Elizabeth Cady Stanton founded the organized women's rights movement in the United States. She also was active in the anti-slavery and temperance movements. Marrying abolitionist Harry B. Stanton in 1840, she insisted on the deletion of "obey" from the marriage vows. Stanton and Lucretia Coffin Mott organized the Seneca Falls Convention, July 18 -20, 1848, the first women's rights assembly in America.

Mott was an American Quaker preacher, abolitionist, and women's rights advocate. She was married to fellow Quaker James Mott. She helped establish the Anti-Slavery Convention of American Women in 1837. After 1840, when an international anti-slavery conference in London rejected her credentials and those of other American women delegates because of their sex, Mott gave greater attention to women's rights issues. Carrie Chapman Catt was a women's suffrage and peace advocate who played a major role in the 1920 ratification of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. As president of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, she shifted the movement's emphasis from propaganda to political action. She founded the League of Women Voters in 1920.
