On This Date in Minnesota History: March 28

March 28, 1870 – “Elizabeth Cady Stanton, abolitionist and women’s rights activist, visited St. Cloud,” Minn. She “delivered a speech on women’s rights titled ‘Open The Door.’  Stanton persuaded that many doors be opened: ‘the church door, the door to all employments, the door to equal wages, the door to the ballot, and so on.”
