Suffrage Movement


Definition: Leader of the movement to grant American women the right to vote, along with Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott. Anthony was instrumental in bringing together men and women for a national convention in Seneca Falls, New York, in 1848. The result was a sort of "improved" Declaration of Independence, which included the phrase "all men and women are created equal." She also spoke out against slavery and worked for the Underground Railroad during the Civil War. Together with Mott, Stanton, and Stone, she helped form the American Equal Rights Association after the Civil War.
