Susan B. Anthony
In 1868, Susan B. Anthony launched her women's rights weekly publication The Revolution in New York City. The journal's motto was "The true republic — men, their rights and nothing more; women, their rights and nothing less." It discussed revolutionary ideas at the time about women's roles, including the right to vote, equal pay, divorce laws, and the church's treatment of women. Susan was the publisher while Elizabeth Cady Stanton served as editor, and the two would work together again to found the National Woman Suffrage Association (NWSA) in 1869.
When asked if women would ever have the right to vote, Susan had said, "It will come, but I shall not see it . . . It is inevitable. We can no more deny forever the right of self-government to one-half our people than we could keep the Negro forever in bondage. It will not be wrought by the same disrupting forces that freed the slave, but come it will, and I believe within a generation." It was 14 years after she passed away that women were given the right to vote with the 19th Amendment in 1920.
