Born in 1820, Susan B. Anthony became one of the top leaders in the women’s suffrage movement and other social causes. Anthony championed abolition and labor rights including equal pay for women. Her father was friends with other abolitionists such as William Lloyd Garrison and Frederick Douglass. Interacting with them made Anthony also join the abolitionist movement.
Anthony’s most notable event came in 1872 when she and other women with her were arrested and fined for voting. This event sparked outrage and brought attention to the women’s suffrage movement which was much needed. Anthony would continue to fight for the cause, even helping to form the National American Women’s Suffrage Association in 1888. Unfortunately, Anthony died in 1906, before she could see her dream realized. Her hard effort was not in vain, as the 19th amendment gave women the right to vote in 1920, something that could not have happened without Anthony’s many years of work.
