Significance and Impact of Susan B. Anthony ?
She was a key figure in women getting the right to vote.
At a temperance meeting in 1851, Anthony met Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who would be her comrade-in-arms until the latter's death in 1902. Anthony lectured on temperance, abolition and women's rights from that year until 1860. With Stanton, she pressed for the first laws passed by New York's legislature that ensured for women control of property, wages and rights over their children.
In 1863, Anthony co-organized the Women's Loyal League to back the embattled Lincoln administration, particularly on the issue of emancipation. When the 15th Amendment, passed in 1869, granted the right to vote to black men, but not to women, Anthony and Stanton broke with many suffragists by opposing the new law.
That year, Anthony and Stanton organized the National Woman Suffrage Association. Anthony published and edited the magazine, The Revolution, which centered on the association. Their slogan: "The true republic—men, their rights and nothing more; women, their rights and nothing less."
The acknowledged spokeswoman for the movement, Anthony traveled and lectured throughout the United States and Europe.
In her town of Rochester, New York, Anthony and more than a dozen other women registered for the election of 1871. The next day, 40 more women did the same. On election day, Anthony and 14 suffragists managed to vote. She was arrested, tried in a hostile judge's court, found guilty and fined $100. Anthony refused to pay it, saying, "May it please your honor, I will never pay a dollar of your unjust penalty." The trial was a national sensation—and the fine remains unpaid.
By 1890, the National Woman Suffrage Association merged with the American Woman Suffrage Association to form the National American Woman Suffrage Association. Anthony served as president from 1892 to 1900.
With Stanton and Matilda Joslyn Gage, she helped to compile the first volumes of The History of Woman Suffrage, which would eventually grow to six by 1922. The right of women to vote became reality with the 19th Amendment, ratified 14 years after Susan B. Anthony's death.
When and why did Susan B. Anthony die?
Susan B. Anthony died on March 13, 1906 . Dr. M. S. Ricker, her attending physician, said Miss Anthony died of heart disease and pneumonia of both lungs. She had had serious valvular heart trouble for the last six or seven years. Her lungs were practically clear and the pneumonia had yielded to treatment, but the weakness of her heart prevented her recovery.
Miss Anthony was taken ill while on her way home from the National Suffrage Convention in Baltimore. She stopped in New York, where a banquet was to be given Feb. 20 in honor of her eighty-sixth birthday, but she had an attack of neuralgia on Feb. 18 and hastened home. Pneumonia developed after her arrival here, and on March 5 both her lungs became affected. She rallied, but had a relapse three days ago, and the end after that never was in doubt.
