March is Women’s History Month. Today we honor: Susan B. Anthony. In 1856, Susan B. Anthony began working as an agent for the American Anti-Slavery Society. There, she promoted civil rights up until the end of the Civil War. After the war ended she shifted gears and began working with Elizabeth Stanton on women’s rights and their right to vote. In 1886, they both began writing a weekly publication in the paper called “The Revolution”. This publication expressed to people that there were inequalities among women. Although it was 14 years after she died that the 19th Amendment was created, it was due to Anthony’s efforts that women are now seen as equal to men.
