Women’s rights activist Susan B. Anthony born on this day 200 years ago

American Women’s rights activist Susan B. Anthony was born on Feb. 15, 1820, in Adams, Massachusetts. She grew up in a quaker family committed to social equality.

The belief that everyone was equal under one God attached to her throughout her life. Susan traveled around the world to talk about the sufferings of women. She spoke on the topics of labor rights, equal pay and ending slavery.

She worked closely with Elizabeth Cady Stanton. They both fight for women’s rights for 50 years.

Some of their achievements include co-founding the American Equal Rights Association, becoming editors of the Association’s newspaper “The Revolution,” and forming the National Woman Suffrage Association.

She traveled from country to country to give speeches on women’s rights. In 1872, Anthony was jailed for polling. She was investigated and penalized $100 for her crime.

Anthony died in 1906. After 14 years the 19th Amendment was approved, giving women the right to vote. It is now known as the Susan B. Anthony Amendment.

The fourth-grade students paid honor to Susan on her 200th birthday by making cards.

Google doodle also paid tribute to Susan on her 200th birthday.
