Susan B. Anthony & the 19th Amendment


Susan B. Anthony, Women's Rights Pioneer

Income Inequality that remains an issue for American Women today is but one of the myriad reasons this Women's Rights Pioneer got off the sidelines in into the arena of Political Activism. Born on February 15, 1820 Susan B. Anthony remained single her entire life & never married, likely making this her number one motivating factor in becoming a leader in the Women's Rights Movement.

Having only herself to depend on for support, she was outraged that Women were paid less than men.

New York State Married Women's Property Act of 1847

Born & raised a Quaker, Anthony was raised with the notion that boys & girls should receive the same Education & was shocked to learn later in life that this was not the case for Women in other Non-Quaker communities.
