Women in US History

1900 to the present /

History 6

Susan B. Anthony, above, died before she saw her lifelong passion--suffrage for women--become reality. Today, although thousands of women were actively agitating to win the vote and millions advocated for the vote more passively, Anthony is often singled out as the heroine of the movement. She would undoubtedly appreciate the tribute, but correct the oversight: social change is made by large masses of people, not only or even mainly by "leaders." This is an important insight into women's history!
