Susan B. Anthony spent her life working to bring equality to women and African Americans. She wanted both groups to have the same educational opportunities, the same working options, and the same voting rights as white males. Anthony believed that all people were equal and deserved the same rights under the U.S. Constitution. She organized campaigns, lecture tours, and petition drives, spent months at a time traveling the country alone, using her own money to cover her expenses. At a time when it was illegal for a woman to vote in an election, file for divorce, or own property, Anthony incited people to consider change with her clear voice, direct language, and powerful messages.
