Today Susan B. Anthony may be an international icon of the fight for women's rights, but her campaign for equality had personal roots. As a school teacher in New York, Anthony refused to settle for less pay than her male colleagues, and the experience ignited her lifelong devotion to women’s equality. Anthony toured the United States and Europe giving speeches and publishing articles as one of the most important advocates of women’s rights. She even got arrested after challenging laws that prevented women from voting! And while she didn't live to see the passage of the 19th Amendment, her tireless efforts for suffrage changed the world.
This book from the captivating illustrated Who Was...? biography series introduces middle grade readers to a determined advocate and activist who dedicated the majority of her life to equality for women.
