Happy Birthday, Susan B. Anthony

“Men, their rights, and nothing more; women, their rights, and nothing less.”

“I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires.”

“There never will be complete equality until women themselves help to make laws and elect lawmakers.”

“It was we, the people; not we, the white male citizens; nor yet we, the male citizens; but we, the whole people, who formed the Union. And we formed it, not to give the blessings of liberty, but to secure them; not to the half of ourselves and the half of our posterity, but to the whole people – women as well as men.”

“Organize, agitate, educate, must be our war cry.”

Susan B. Anthony was born on February 15, 1820.

She was a tireless social reformer and advocate for women’s rights and played a pivotal role in securing the vote for American women.
