Their Place Inside the Body-Politic is a phrase Susan B. Anthony used to express her aspiration for something women had not achieved, but it also describes the woman suffrage movementas transformation into a political body between 1887 and 1895. This fifth volume opens in February 1887, just after the U.S. Senate had rejected woman suffrage, and closes in November 1895 with Stantonas grand birthday party at the Metropolitan Opera House. At the beginning, Stanton and Anthony focus their attention on organizing the International Council of Women in 1888. Late in 1887, Lucy Stoneas American Woman Suffrage Association announced its desire to merge with the national association led by Stanton and Anthony. Two years of fractious negotiations preceded the 1890 merger, and years of sharp disagreements followed. Stanton made her last trip to Washington in 1892 to deliver her famous speech aSolitude of Self.a Two states enfranchised womenaWyoming in 1890 and Colorado in 1893abut failures were numerous. Anthony returned to grueling fieldwork in South Dakota in 1890 and Kansas and New York in 1894. From the campaigns of 1894, Stanton emerged as an advocate of educated suffrage and staunchly defended her new position.... in sending Mrs Gages letterI had asked you some questions about copyright I wanted to know before adding Mrs Gages ... Moreover, in a fit ofpique in 1893, she swore never again to work on anything with ECS. When ECS named the members ofher original committee to a reporter from the New York World in mid- March 1895, Gage was not in the list. ... By early May, before the copyright dispute played itself out, Gage had reserved the books of Matthew and Revelations for herself.
