Below are two posters of Susan B. Anthony, a pioneer of women's rights and woman suffrage in the late 19th century. Susan B. Anthony's writings were racist, but she led the crusade for women with Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Anthony lived from 1820-1906.
She was born in 1820 and was fortunate enough to go to a school that her father ran as a young woman. After Susan B. Anthony came of age, she taught for the next 15 years at a variety of different small schools. She became heavily involved in the anti-slavery and women's rights movements in the early 1850's. Susan devoted herself entirely to women's rights in 1854. Susan B. Anthony became one of the most eloquent and articulate women of the time to speak of equal rights for females. She even tried to vote in the 1872 election, but was served a warrant and fined. Susan B. Anthony died in 1906, a full decade before women were allowed to vote in the United States.
