American Women and the Right to Vote

Monday, March 9, 2020
3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Community Room

Join us for a four-week series on American Women and their struggle to obtain the right to vote coinciding with The Centennial of the Women's Right to Vote.

Week Two: Susan B. Anthony

One of many emerging from the 19th century as a champion of Women's Rights. Ms. Anthony was not only a suffragette, but an abolitionist as well. Born into a Quaker family, she will become an endless campaigner to make her gender the political equal of Men. Susan B. Anthony can best be summed up with the motto from the short-lived weekly newspaper published by Anthony and her sidekick, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, "Men, their rights and nothing more; women, their rights and nothing less."
