Susan B. Anthony
Date: 1820 - 1906
Remarks: Susan Brownell Anthony, born in 1820, was brought up in a very strict Quaker household in Adams, Massachusetts. She first entered the world of reform working for temperance, however she was also active in the fight against slavery, and is most known for her work in the women's suffrage movement. In the late 1860's she and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, a close friend and fellow reformer, published "The Revolution", a newspaper in New York calling for equal pay among the sexes. Anthony also travelled around the country giving speeches and testing the limits of voting laws. She continued to work for her causes until her death in 1906. - Source: http://www.susanbanthonyhouse.org/
