Women’s History: February 15

15 Feb

Pioneer for Women's Rights

Happy Birthday, Susan B. Anthony.  Anthony is was one of the most visible and prominent voices in the Suffrage Movement. She and Elizabeth Cady Stanton worked tirelessly for women to gain the right to vote in the United States. Unfortunately, Anthony did not live long enough to see the passage of the 19th Amendment. Anthony, like many Quakers of her time, was also an outspoken abolitionist. Anthony’s work and friendship with Amelia Bloomer, (some credit with the creation of bloomers) led to a lifelong friendship and working partnership with Cady Stanton. To learn more about Susan B. Anthony, click here.

Happy Birthday, Sarah Fuller. Fuller was an advocate and educator for the deaf.

    Susan B.? Very auspicious birthday company. What does sharing a birthday with Ms. Anthony and Matt Groening say about Robert?
