Susan B. Anthony
Susan B. Anthony was an Abolitionist and women’s right advocate in the mid to late nineteenth century. Anthony first advocated for the temperance movement, but shifted her attention to women’s suffrage after being refused the right to speak at temperance rallies. Anthony was arrested for voting in 1872, and quickly became a national women’s right leader. She was appointed president of the National American Women Suffrage Association in 1892. 14 years after her death, in 1920, the Susan B. Anthony amendment finally granted women the right to vote.
