Crucible of Freedom

Special | 26m 24s

In the middle of the 19th century, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony launched a woman's rights movement that was to change the world. This documentary describes how the interplay of events of the time - evangelical Christianity, the anti-slavery movement and even the opening of the Erie Canal - gave rise to the women's movement.
