7: Elizabeth Cady Stanton by Sam Rupff and Timothy Osborne I was helping my ladies bit by bit, even though a few presidents were against me. I didn't marry as soon as other ladies because I needed to get a better education to make a statement. I learned languages like French, and I was determined to make my dreams come true. Soon, I fell in love with Henry Stanton. I started to protest that women should vote, but even Henry thought I was crazy. I soon succeeded, after all my hard work. It payed off, and I will always be remembered as the ladies protester.
