March is Women’s History Month. We are eternally grateful for the women before us who fought for our rights.
Thank you to women’s rights leaders, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton (pictured) who founded the National Woman Suffrage Association in 1869.
Take some time today and read up on these amazing women here. Not only where Stanton and Anthony suffragist, securing the woman’s right to vote, they were abolitionist, helping persuade Congress to pass the 13th Amendment guaranteeing the freedom of African Americans. Their collaboration exemplifies what women can do when they work together.
“In 1851, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton embarked on a collaboration that evolved into one of the most productive working partnerships in U.S. history. As uncompromising women’s rights leaders, they revolutionized the political and social condition of women in American society. Stanton was the leading voice and philosopher of the women’s rights and suffrage movements while Anthony was the powerhouse who commandeered the legions of women who struggled to win the ballot for American women.” MORE
