Susan B. Anthony
Susan B. Anthony Printable(** for Premium Members only)
Susan Brownell Anthony (1820-1906) was a tireless leader of the women’s rights movement, fighting over fifty years for women’s suffrage (the right to vote), equal education, property rights and even dress reform. In 1851, she met Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who became a lifelong friend, and the two formed a partnership devoted to winning the right to vote.
Famous Trials: Susan B. Anthony Trial
The Nineteenth Amendment giving women suffrage was passed fourteen years after Anthony’s death. “She would, however, once have the satisfaction of seeing her completed ballot drop through the opening of a ballot box. It happened in Rochester, New York on November 5, 1872, and the event and the trial for illegal voting that followed would create a opportunity for Anthony to spread her arguments for women suffrage to a wider audience than ever before.” In addition to details about the trial, Famous Trials has an Anthony biography, and 100-year timeline of women’s struggle for the vote.
Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond: Susan B. Anthony
On October 10, 1978, President Carter signed the bill that created the Susan B. Anthony dollar coin. It was minted four times: in 1979, 1980, 1981 and again in 1999. The coins are often called “Suzy Bucks” or “Carter’s Quarters.” Learn more about why they were created and why they are no longer in production at this Federal Reserve Bank page, which also includes a timeline of Anthony’s achievements.
PBS: Not for Ourselves Alone
“On November 2, 1920 over eight million American women voted for the first time in American history … The two women who had fought longest for women’s rights, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, did not live long enough to cast a [legal] ballot themselves.” Start with the excellent video (by clicking anywhere on the front page) and then peruse the sections listed in the horizontal menu at the bottom of the page.
