Portrait of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony

Description

Susan B. Anthony, the most well-known suffragist in the U.S., did not attend the women’s rights conventions in 1848. She was teaching in Canajoharie, NY, and lecturing against alcohol use at the time. She did not join the fight for women’s rights until 1851 when she was introduced to Elizabeth Cady Stanton, one of the organizers of the Seneca Falls Convention. The two became lifelong friends and reform partners, leading the woman suffrage movement together for more than 50 years.
