Susan Brownell Anthony (1820-1906) was a women's rights activist and revered figure in the United Sates' women's suffrage movement. Working with her friend Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Anthony launched a women's rights newspaper in 1868 called 'Revolution', spearheaded a huge anti-slavery petition, and launched a number of groups campaigning for women's suffrage. Anthony was arrested and convicted in 1872 for being the first woman to vote in a Presidential election, but by the end of her life, had become a respected public figure. The nineteenth amendment to the US Constitution, which gave women the right to vote in 1920, is known as the 'Anthony Amendment'.
