Anthony is a renowned women’s rights activist, author, suffragist, abolitionist, and most importantly the president of the National American Woman Suffrage Association. Anthony taught for 15 years before she became a social activist for women’s rights. Her path began when she met Elizabeth Stanton during a anti-slavery conference in 1851. After establishing the Women’s New York State Temperance Society in 1852, Anthony and Stanton began a movement for women to be able to own property and have the right to vote.

Running head: Women’s Struggle for Equality HIS204 December 09, 2013 Women’s Struggle for Equality Suffrage for women was a cause that began over seventy years before the nation saw fit to give women the right to vote, and it's one of those complicated stories you get in history that make the process even more interesting and dramatic. Doesn't seem like that would be so difficult, does it? The origins of Women's Suffrage in the United States are entwined with the anti-slavery movement.

This fear is especially shown in the article by a woman named, “Savida, who declined to give her family name [to the community center] because she feared violence from her husband” (Mekhennet). This signifies that violence is the root of fear that results in women to conform to their traditional roles, as they fear the consequences of disobedience.
