It’s Women’s History Month! I love reading about all the great women of the ages who worked hard to create the freedoms we have today. I am currently OB-to-the-SESSED with Susan B. Anthony!
She was SUPER into civil reform. At only 17 years old, she rebelled against society by collecting Anti-Slavery petitions! I love, LoVe, LOVE that a high school aged kid was out there, bucking the system and trying to make a difference for the greater good!
Susan B. Anthony’s first passion was ending slavery, but in her early thirties she extended her passion for equal rights to include the fight for women. She believed the pen is mightier than the sword (just like me!!) and started her publishing own women’s rights newspaper, called “Revolution.”
She was often ridiculed for her views because they did not represent the current beliefs of the day. However, Susan B. Anthony fought hard every day of her life for what she knew was good, right and true. As a result of her awesome efforts, she helped end slavery and bring about the 19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote.
She is sooooooo FABnomenal!!!
Have you ever had to stand up and fight for something you believe in?
