She Was One of The Biggest Faces of The Women’s Suffrage Movement And Dedicated Her Life To Ensuring Women Would One Day Get The Same Opportunities As Men

Susan and Elizabeth continued to organize protests and fight for women’s rights after Congress passed the 14th and 15th Amendments, which were progressive in that they gave voting rights to African-American men but in no way gave women the right to vote.

That’s when they formed the National Woman Suffrage Association, which focused on pushing Congress to pass an amendment that would give women the right to vote.

Unlike many women in the 19th century, Susan never married and had no children. She continued working hard as an activist, traveling the country to give speeches, leading protests, gathering signatures for petitions, etc., until she was in her 80s.

Susan passed away in 1906 at the age of 86 in her home in New York due to heart failure and pneumonia. She never lived to see the passing of the 19th Amendment, which legally gave women the right to vote in 1920.

Although she never got to see the 19th Amendment pass, Susan was part of some of the most important political movements in American history. It’s strange to think about what the women’s suffrage movement would’ve looked like without her and the organizations she helped build.
