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

Manuscript plays written by Hurston which were deposited in the Library of Congress Copyright Office between 1925 and 1944. Most of the plays remained unpublished and unproduced until they were rediscovered in the Copyright Deposit Drama Collection in 1997. Includes four very short plays, sketches or skits, and six full-length plays. Most are light-hearted if not outright comedies, and several include song lyrics without the associated music. Hurston knew the songs and subjects of these plays from her study of folklore in the African-American South as well as her own upbringing in the South. During the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s, she traveled the American South collecting and recording the sounds and songs of her people, while her research in Haiti is reflected in the voodoo scenes and beliefs woven into several of the plays
