ABSTRACT

In the American Nineteenth Century, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, through the women’s rights movement, raised the issues of women’s access to quality education and gender equality in a male-dominated society where women’s lives were controlled by deep-seated beliefs, customs and laws. Stanton’s concerns were pointed out in 2000 in the Millennium Development Goals Summit and in 2015 in the Sustainable Development Goals Summit. The purpose of this article is to show that Stanton and the leaders of these two summits share the view that the world will not reach a harmonious, a more equitable and sustainable development if the challenges of women’s access to quality education and gender equality are not met.
