Susan and delivered speeches that were writtenSusan and delivered speeches that were written

      Susan B. Anthony, born on February 15, 1820,  devoted her life in trying to earn women’s right to vote. She traveled all of the United States giving speeches about 75-100 times a year. This lasted for about forty-five years . She even went as far as the Revolution, writing a newspaper, and even casting a ballot, despite it being illegal.       In the early 1800’s young females were not allowed the same education that young males had. Susan’s father, Daniel believed boys and girls should be treated equally and should have the same education and allowed Anthony to get education from a private boarding school in Philadelphia 1838.       Susan’s fighting for Women’s Rights all started in 1851 when she met Elizabeth Cady Stanton.  They had first started working on fixing New York’s law in discriminating women.  Anthony organized state campaigns and delivered speeches that were written by Elizabeth Cady Stanton.       In 1852, Anthony went to  her first women’s right convention. A couple of years after this, in 1856, Susan B. Anthony then is certified as an agent for the anti-slavery society program.       In 1863,  during the Civil War, Susan found  the Women’s Loyal League . The Women? Loyal League fought for freeing slaves.        Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony had worked together and made the National Woman Suffrage Association. They had to work hard to earn women’s right to vote.  For about ten years, Anthony and Stanton worked hard in writing their newspaper, The Revolution, which focused on the injustices that women have to suffer everyday. After she made the Women’s Loyal League, Susan B. Anthony then called the first ever Women’s Suffrage Convention in Washington DC. in 1869. During the presidential election of 1872, Anthony casted a ballot to protest for women’s rights then after that she was arrested. In 1873  Susan B. Anthony is fined one-hundred dollars after the jury found her as guilty Anthony refuses to pay, but is not imprisoned.       Then in 1881, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Matilda Joslin Gage publish Volume one of the History of Women’s Suffrage, then Volume two in 1882, then Volume three in 1885, and the final one, Volume 4 in 1902.       Then in 1883, Susan went to Europe to meet up with other women who wanted to fight for the right to vote. Later in 1888, Anthony helped make the International American Council of Women, which then helped expressed 48 countries. Few years later, in 1905, Anthony then has a meeting with President Theodore Roosevelt about Anthony submitting a suffrage amendment to congress. Just fourteen years after her death, at the age of 86, in 1920, the 19th amendment, or also known as the Susan B. Anthony amendment, is added and states that females over 21 are allowed to vote.       If I had the chance do something like this, I would, I believe that if I was in Susan B. Anthony’s shoes just like her, I would not want to be just standing around, if I know I can do something to fix this problem then I would fix it without hesitation. It’s also fascinating that Susan B. Anthony was able to get the right for women to vote with no violence whatsoever. I know if I was her, I probably would not have been able to do it without at least a little bit of violence, but that’s just me.       In conclusion, Susan B. Anthony is one of my hero’s because without her, we would not have been able to get women’s right to vote and to be treated more seriously. Who knows where women would be today without Susan B. Anthony.
