The nineteenth Amendment, which shields ladies' entitlement to vote, was nicknamed in her respect, the Susan B. Anthony Amendment.Susan should be anadmirationand figure model to all women because throughout hercircumstances she never gave up for what she believed was right. Even froma young age she was already fulfilling acts of bravery and knew the fight for herself and for womenwasn'tgoing to beaneasy road. During, this time Susan couldhadbeen really hurt or even killed because many had hatred towards women who even showed power or tried to speak out asa woman. Susan was sent to jail just because she spoke at a gathering was unfair not only to her but womenbynot letting them have freedom of speech just like man had during that time.In1846, atthe age 26, Susan B.

This shows howdedicatedSusan was to put her own life on the line for thousands of strangers to her, shewantedto make astatementacross America that women deserve to have the same education, privilege, and job pay as men. She fought hard and long for women rights and never gave up when shecould'vestopped but she kept going and going until she reached her goal.

Susan B. Anthony's paper The Revolution, first distributed in 1868, supported an eight-hour work day and equivalent pay measure up to work. It advanced an arrangement of acquiring American-made merchandise and urging movement to remake the south and settle the whole nation. DistributingtheRevolution in New York got herincontactwith womenin the Printing exchanges.In 1868, Anthony energized working ladies from the printing and sewing exchanges in New York, who were rejected from men's exchange associations, to shape workingwomen's Associations. As a delegate to the National Labor Congress in 1868 Anthony convinced the advisory group on female work to call for votes in favor of ladies and equivalent pay for break even with work,even thoughthe men at the gathering erased the reference to the vote.In 1870, Anthony framed and was chosen leader of the workingwomen's Central Association. The Association drew up gives an account of working conditions and gave instructive chances to working ladies. Anthony empowered a helpful workshop established by the sewing Machine Operations Union and supported the recently framedwomentypesetters' association in The Revolution. Anthony attempted to set up exchange schools for womenprinters. at the point when printers in New York went on strike, she encouraged managers to contract ladies rather, trusting this would demonstrate that they could carry out the activityandmen, and accordingly demonstrate that they merited equivalent pay. At the 1869 National Labor Union Congress, the men's Typographical Union blamed her for strike-breaking and running a non-association shop at TheRevolutionandcalled her an adversary of work.In the 1890s, while leader of the National American Women Suffrage Association, Anthony underlined the significance of picking up the help of composed work.

She supported Florence Kelley and Jane Addams in their work in Chicago, And Gail Laughlin in her objective to look for assurance for working womenthrough exchange associations.Susan B. Anthony was raised a Quaker. Her family thought drinking alcohol was corrupt. while Anthony was filling in as leader of the young ladies' division of Canajoharie Academy she joined the Daughters of Temperance, a gathering of ladies who attracted regard for the impacts of tipsiness on families and battled for more grounded alcohol laws. she made her first open discourse in 1848 at a Daughters of Temperance dinner.At the point when Anthony came back to Rochester in 1849 she was chosen leader of the Rochester branch of the Daughters of Temperance and fund-raised for the reason. In 1853 Anthony was denied the privilege to talk at the state tradition of the Sons of Temperance in Albany. she cleared out the gathering and called her own. In 1853 Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton established the Women's state Temperance society with the objective of requesting of the state lawmaking body to pass a law restricting the offer of alcohol. The state lawmaking body dismissed theappealbecausethe greater part of the 28,000 marks were from womenand children. Anthony chose that womenrequired the vote with the goal that lawmakers would hear them out. she and Stanton were reprimanded for speaking excessively about ladies' rights and surrendered from the womenstate Temperance Society.In the 1860s Anthony and Stanton attracted thoughtfulness regarding the instance of Abby Mcfarland whose tanked and oppressive spouse, Daniel, shot and murdered the man she had separated from him to wed. They dissented when Daniel was absolved of murder on a request of impermanent madness and given guardianship of their child.

In the 1870s Anthony bolstered the Rochesterwomenassociationof the ladies'ChristianTemperance association,althoughshe disclosed to them that womenneed to get the vote to achieve their objective. she declined to help restriction since she trusted it reduced consideration from the reason for womensuffrage.Susan B. Anthony was persuaded by her work for balance that womenrequired the vote if they somehow managed to impact open undertakings. she was acquainted by Amelia Bloomer with Elizabeth Cady Stanton, one of the pioneers of the women'srights development, in 1851, and went to her firstwomen'srightstradition in Syracuse in 1852. Anthony and Stanton trusted the Republicans would remuneratewomenfor their work in building support for the Thirteenth Amendment by giving them the vote. They were severely frustrated when this did not occur. In 1866 Anthony and Stanton established the American Equal Rights Association and in 1868 they began distributing the daily paper The Revolution in Rochester, with the masthead "men their rights, and taking note of additional; ladies, their rights, and nothing less", and the point of setting up "equity for all".In 1869 the suffrage development split, with Anthony and Stanton's National Association proceeding to crusade for a sacred revision, and the American Women Suffrage Association embracing a system of getting the vote in favor of ladies on a state-by-state premise. Wyoming turned into the primary domain to give womenthe vote in 1869.In 1877, she accumulated petitions from 26 states with 10,000 marks, however congresslaughedatthem. she showed up before each congress from 1869 to 1906 to request entry of a suffrage revision.

In the vicinity of 1881 and 1885 Anthony, Stanton and Matilda Joslin Gage worked together on and distributed the History of womansuffrage. The last volume, altered by Anthony and Ida Husted Harper, was distributed in 1902.In 1887 the twowomen'ssuffrageassociations converged as the National American lady Suffrage Association with Stanton as president and Anthony as VP. Anthony moved toward becoming president in 1892 when Stanton resigned. Anthony crusaded in the west in the 1890s to ensure that domains where womenhad the vote were not hindered from admission to the association. She went to the International Council of womenat the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago.In 1900, matured 80, Anthony resigned as leader of NAWSA. In 1904 Anthony directed the International committee of womenin Berlin and wound up privileged leader of Carrie Chapman Catt's International Woman suffrage Alliance.Thisextortionarywomen had manyaccomplishmentsthroughout her life time that she is now remember as a hero, leader, and outstanding strong individual. Anthonyrelates to many people we have discuss in class by many others who fought for what was right for all race not just one race.SusanB. Anthony wasknownfor fighting for women rights and it was a struggle because many who men who had power laughed in her face because they took women as a joke. The important fight she was known for was be able to have women vote in the late 90s, this is something that she didn't give up about because she believed that women should have a voice also. Now, I'm going to talk about the voting rights for women,gone by congress June 4, 1919, and approved on August 18, 1920, the nineteenth amendment conceded womenthe privilege to vote.

Accomplishing this point of reference required an extensive and troublesome battle; triumph took many years of disturbance and challenge.Now, I would want to introduced Anthony's friend Elizabeth Cady whoalsoplayed a role in helping women gain their rights.Conceived on November 12, 1815, in Johnstown, New York, Elizabeth Cady grew upduringriches and benefit, the little girl of Daniel Cady, a noticeable judge, and Margaret Livingston. She went to the Progressive Troy female Seminary, where she got the best educationaccessible. After her graduation in 1833, she moved toward becoming drenched in the realm of change at the home of her cousin Gerrit Smith. There she began to look all starry eyed at the abolitionist Henry Brewster would turn into her most essential tutor in her improvement as a women's activist, the abolitionist Lucretia Mott. At the point when the Stanton's moved from Boston to the town of Seneca Falls, New York, in 1847, Elizabeth experienced the absence of a scholarly group. From this sadness developed and three other ladies, Elizabeth led the principalwomen's' rights tradition in Seneca falls in July 1848. At this get-together, she displayed their Declaration of Rights and resolutions requested social and political equity for all ladies, including its most questionable claim, the privilege to vote.In 1851, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton left on a cooperation that developed into a standout amongst the most gainful working jaguar sends in U.S. history. As political and social state ofwomenin American culture. Stanton was the main voice and savant of the womenrights and suffrage developments while Anthony was attempted to win the poll for American women.The ladies had initially met in 1851 when Anthony headed out to an anti-slaverymeetingin Seneca Falls, New York, where Stanton had sorted out the principal national lady's rights tradition there in 1848.

The two ladies were in their thirties: Anthony had been educating, and Stanton was hitched to abolitionist Henry B. Stanton. Their association in the abolitionist development had developed a common enthusiasm for more extensive balanceissuesandwas enthusiastic about the privilege of ladies to partake in the representing procedure and have control over their ownlives. Anthony was roused by Stanton's vision for propelling ladies, and Anthony's sorting out aptitudes were soon evident to Stanton, who had youngchildrenand couldn't travel routinely. Together, they propelled a national lady's suffrage development, distributed the daily paper The Revolution, and addressed, campaigned, and challenged for measure up to rights.As they were hanging over the reins to another age of suffragists, America went to war with Spain, picked up control of new island domains, and set up governments that restricted women rights. on the territory, a post-Reconstruction reaction against African American social equality was becoming more grounded in the south. By the turn of the century, Anthony and Stanton stressed the battle for uniformity was going in reverse.generally speaking, votingidealsfor anybody other than white men were ending up more limited, not less. Ladies' increases in the working environment as state funded teachers, for example were likewise under flame. What's more, the senior suffragists didn't know their young colleagues comprehended the risk. One such test came in mid 1896, when delegates at the NAWSA tradition passed a determination to revile Stanton's two-volume work The Woman's Bible, a gathering of analyses by Stanton and others on religion and ladies' enslavement. In the disputable success, Stanton broke down sacred texts and refuted the individuals who utilized the book of scriptures to legitimize denying women rights.

Some moderate individuals from the suffrage affiliation objected to the book, and others thought it reduced their suffrage objective.Response to The Woman's Bible, alongside weakness, detached Stanton from the suffrage development toward the finish of her life, yet Anthony remained her eyes and ears on the ground. Stanton kept on composing, and her unwavering investigates of religion and different points that Anthony felt were distracting to suffrage, energized a progressing difference between them. " It is fifty-one years since we first met, and we have been busy throughevery oneof them, stirring up the world to recognize the rights of women", Susan B. Anthony wrote her friend Elizabeth Cady Stanton in 1902. In memory ofSusan B. Anthony who died March 13,1906 at her home on Madison Street in Rochester due to the sickness ofpneumonia. All American grown-up womenat last got the vote with the Nineteenth Amendment, otherwise called the Susan B. Anthony Amendment, in 1920. And her beloved friend Elizabeth Cady Stanton who died on October 26, 1902 in New York city due to a congestive heart failure.
