TheStreet's month-long video series Women's History, Wall Street, and Beyond continues today with a look back at Elizabeth Cady Stanton.

A noted abolitionist and true radical of her time, Stanton was one of the earliest American proponents of women's suffrage. 

She continually pushed the envelope of civil and human rights arguing for the right of women to divorce, to serve on juries, and even to ride bicycles. 

She was also the first woman to run for Congress in 1866.

As Women's History Month kicked off, TheStreet took a look back at How Estée Lauder Changed the Face of the Cosmetics Industry ( (EL) ) and learned more about Jane Fraser, Citi's New CEO and First Female Leader of a Major U.S. Bank. ( (C) )
