Susan B. Anthony

a.k.a. Susan Brownell Anthony

Author Code: ASBA

Born: Feb. 15, 1820 - Adams, Massachusetts, USA

Died: Mar. 13, 1906 - Rochester, New York, USA

Born into a family of Quakers, the family moved from Massachusetts to New York in 1826. Anthony was mostly taught at home by her father until she entered Deborah Moulson's Female Seminary in 1837. She was forced to leave the school after a short time due to the economic collapse of late 1837, and her family's subsequent financial difficulties. In 1839, Anthony left home and began to teach in order to help the family. First at Eunice Kenyons Friends' Seminary and then at Canajoharie Academy, Anthony rose to the position of headmistress of the Female Department. It was here that she saw the injustice dealt to women as male teachers were paid four times more for the same work. In 1849, she joined the Daughters of Temperance and moved the family to Rochester, New York. In 1851, she met Elizabeth Cady Stanton and the two became life-long friends. In 1852, Anthony gave a speech on women's rights at the National Women's Rights Convention in Syracuse. She was part of the anti-slavery movement and worked for the American Anti-Slavery Society in New York. Together with Stanton, she found The Revolution in 1868, a journal dedicated to women's rights that ran for slightly more than a year. Anthony was arrested in 1872 for voting in the presidential election. During her trial, she invoked the 14th Amendment to no avail and it was clear that the judge was intent on finding her guilty. nevertheless, she was only fined $100 and served no jail time. True to her word in court, she never paid the fine. Anthony became a lecturer and toured the U.S. in the suffragist cause. In 1890, she helped in the merger of the National Woman Suffrage Association (founded by her and Stanton in 1869) with the American Woman Suffrage Association (founded by Lucy Stone) and created the National American Woman Suffrage Association. She worked with Stanton, Ida Harper and Matilda Gage in publishing/editing The History of Woman Suffrage (1884-87). She formally retired in 1900, although she continued to contribute articles to periodicals until her death in 1906.
