Stanton and they were instantly married. Soon she and her husband moved to London to attend "World Anti-Slavery Convention" there Stanton met Lucretia Mott an advocate with the Women's rights and shared her anger with the women about the lack of woman's rights. On the other hand Susan B. Anthony, from an early age was interested in several reform movements, particulary temperance and abolition. Anthony soon met Lucy stone, Lucretia Mott, Fredrick Douglas and William Lloyd Garrison.
