Susan B. Anthony (Suffragettes)

Susan-B-Anthony-194905-1-402

Born in Massachusetts in 1820, Susan B. Anthony was a prominent civil rights leader during the women’s suffrage movement of the 1800s. She had become involved in the anti-slavery movement, and it was in doing that work that she encountered gender inequality. With Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Anthony began working to establish women’s right to vote. She also created a weekly paper called Revolution, co-founded the National Woman Suffrage Association, and gave many lectures in the United States and in Europe.
