SUSAN B. ANTHONY (February 15, 1820- March 1906) For fifty-five years of her life, Susan B. Anthony lectured and worked for the right of women to vote, Beginning at the age of 17 she argued for equal pay for teachers, coeducation and college training for girls.
She was a teacher in Canajoharie, N.Y. at the time of the first Woman’s Rights Convention in Seneca Falls, N.Y. in 1848, which she attended. At that time she was interested in organizing the Daughters of Temperance, but after she talked with Lucy Stone and Elizabeth Stanton in 1851, she saw the need for woman suffrage and joined them in a life-long crusade for the rights of women.
