Bible and church degrade woman by Elizabeth Cady Stanton( )

1 edition published in 1898 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1895, Elizabeth Cady Stanton published the first edition of "The Woman's Bible," an attempt to amplify, explain, and redefine scriptural references pertaining to women in the basis that these were often used as a rationale to deny women particular rights and privileges. The work was undertaken by a committee and involved searching the both Old and New Testaments for references to women, cutting them out, and then pasting them on blank pages in a book. Then commentaries were added beneath the quotations. In 1898, "The Woman's Bible" was reprinted, including the addition of a 20-page pamphlet entitled, "Bible and church degrade woman," which contained three essays by Stanton that further explained her position on women in religion. This is one of those essays

The September 11, 2001, Documentary Project captures the heartfelt reactions, eyewitness accounts, and diverse opinions of Americans and others in the months that followed the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and United Airlines Flight 93. Patriotism and unity mixed with sadness, anger, and insecurity are common themes expressed in the sound and video recordings, written narratives, poetry, photographs, and drawings that comprise this online presentation. The day after the attacks, the American Folklife Center called upon the nation's folklorists and ethnographers to collect, record, and document America's reaction. A sampling of the material collected through this effort was used to create the September 11, 2001, Documentary Project. This collection captures the voices of a diverse ethnic, socioeconomic, and political cross-section of America during trying times and serves as a historical and cultural resource for future generations
