In her 1892 address to the U.S. Judiciary, Elizabeth Cady Stanton developed a profound argument about the importance of  educational development and political equality to solitude and the proper use of one's "birthright to self-sovereignty".  In this show, we focus on Elizabeth Cady Stanton's "The Solitude of Self" and its connection to the development clause of Article 26(2) of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which states that "education shall be directed to the full development of the human personality and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms."
