Summary The advocates of woman suffrage and black suffrage came to a bitter falling-out in the midst of Reconstruction, when Elizabeth Cady Stanton opposed the 15th Amendment because it granted the vote to black men but not to women. How did these two causes, so long allied, come to this? Based on extensive research, Fighting Chance is a major contribution to women's history and to 19th-century political history--a story of how idealists descended to racist betrayal and desperate failure.
Contents The age is ripe for the woman question -- Black rights, women's rights, and civil war -- The "Negro's Hour" -- The struggle for equal rights -- Kansas -- Revolutionary journalism and political opportunism -- The fight over the Fifteenth Amendment.
