Susan B. Anthony grew up in a politically active family. They were part of the abolitionist movement, which fought to end slavery. She inherited their political passion and devoted her life to fighting for a different cause.

According to susanbanthony.org, the initial inspiration for Anthony’s work followed her own personal experience with women’s inequality. She was denied the opportunity to speak at a temperance convention solely because of her gender.

According to history.com, Anthony worked to spread her belief that women would not have a stance in politics if they could not vote.

With the help of Elizabeth Candy Staton, Anthony founded the National Women’s Suffrage Movement. She then moved onto creating a newspaper called “The Revolution” with Staton’s help, which was devoted to women’s rights. The pair also edited three volumes of “The History Of the Women’s Suffrage.”

Anthony worked non-stop. She traveled the world and delivered several speeches, and went as far as defying the law by attempting to vote in 1872.

Even though she died 14 years before it passed, Anthony’s work helped pave the way for the Nineteenth Amendment of the Constitution, which gave women the right to vote.  Anthony died on March 13, 1906
