Susan B. Anthony (SBA)

Susan B. Anthony was born in Adams, Massachusetts on February 15, 1820. She grew up in a Quaker home where her parents treated her and her brothers equally. Susan was frustrated because women outside her home where not treated equally, so she decided to do something about it. Later she created a society called, Woman's State Temperance Society of New York along with the help of her friend Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Together they organized protests asking for women's right to vote. 30 years after she passed, the 19th Amendment finally gave women in America the right to vote.
