In 1851, a serendipitous meeting of two women, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, a mother of four boys, and Susan B. Anthony, an unmarried  former school teacher, formed a long lasting friendship that  changed the course of women’s history. In this masterfully written biography, Penny Coleman weaves quotations, historic events, poignant descriptions of both women, and commentary about an enduring friendship that shaped women’s rights.
