Susan B Anthony

Welcome to your learning resource.


Susan B. Anthony was born into a Quaker family with long history of activist traditions, which helped her develop a strong sense of justice and moral zeal.

 After she finished teaching for fifteen years, she became active in the temperance movement, but because she was a woman she could not speak at temperance rallies.

With her not being able to speak in these rallies and being friends with Elizabeth Cady Stanton, she joined the woman’s rights movement in 1852.

Against all the persecution and abuse against her and her movement she traveled, lectured and canvassed across the nation for support. She also campaigned for the abolition of slavery, the right for women to own their own property, retain their own earnings, and she also advocated for woman’s labor organizations.

 Susan B. Anthony, who never married, was aggressive and compassionate by nature. She had a sharp mind and a great ability to inspire. She remained active in the women’s rights movement until her death on March 13, 1906.
