Not For Ourselves Alone tells the dramatic story of the compelling friendship of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. This film provides an unforgettable dual portrait of two Americans who improved the lives of women everywhere.
Tells the forgotten story of the women's rights pioneers Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, from their births to the historic first Women's Rights Convention in 1848, where the demand for the right to vote was first made.
Stanton and Anthony's fight for women's voting rights continues with Anthony's arrest for "illegally" voting in 1872. Finally in 1920 the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote is passed. Neither woman would live to witness it.
