Fighter for Equality - Susan B. Anthony I THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION

Her connection with thoreau's "Civil Disobedience"

Susan B. Anthony wanted the immediate improvement in women's rights by attempting to grant suffrage to them. Similarly, Henry David Thoreau blames the inefficient government and claims that "for remedying the evil ... they take too much time". Anthony wanted to terminate the discrimination of women and African Americans by pursuing equal rights among people and standing against injustice in society. Likewise, Thoreau believes that the slavery should end and says "when a sixth of the population of a nation which has undertaken to be the refuge of liberty are slaves ... it is not too soon for honest men to rebel and revolutionize". Both of them championed for equality among people and disobeyed the unjust government for immediate resolution.
