Susan B. Anthony helped make the fight for women’s rights a prominent message that continues today. After having met William Lloyd Garrison and Frederick Douglass, she became an abolition activist and spoke openly against slavery. Beginning in 1851, she and Elizabeth Cady Stanton worked for over 50 years for women’s rights and, in particular, the right for women to vote. Although she was not able to see her dream of women being given the right to vote before her death in 1906, her work contributed to the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920.
