The Most Prominent Women's Suffrage Group Excluded Men.

In the biography of Annie Oakley called "The Life and Legacy of Annie Oakley"we discovered that one of the reasons why  Oakley stood against the Women's Suffrage Movement, led by feminist icons Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, might have been due to the fact that they openly excluded men from membership in their organization.

Why is it that we never hear this type of information when researching the mainstream feminist recollection of the movement? It's difficult not to conclude that there is major historical revisionism at work to portray these early feminist pioneers as angelic creatures rather than women who, in Stanton and Anthony's case, were known bigots.
