Organizer of the national woman suffrage association?

The National American Woman Suffrage Association did not form until 1890. The NAWSA was a combination of two different suffragist groups. One was founded by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony in 1869 and was called the National Woman Suffrage Association (NWSA). This suffragist organization had a more feminist agenda as Stanton and Anthony sought for a broad range of equal woman's rights in addition to the right for female voting. The other suffrage group was founded by Lucy Stone and Julia Ward Howe, amongst others, and was called the American Woman Suffrage Association (AWSA). This suffragist group focused more on women's right to vote. The main difference between these two suffragist groups was that the NWSA called for a FEDERAL constitutional amendment that would grant women the right to vote; and the AWSA called for STATE action. The AWSA recommended that women should seek federal support after the campaign for black male suffrage had been won. However, even after the 15th amendment (black suffrage) which passed in 1870, the Republican party did not care to support the cause of women's suffrage rights. For another twenty years residual tension kept the two organizations apart until 1890 when the two united finally and renamed the organization the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA) in 1890.
