Equal Rights Advocate Timeline

  • The Revolution

    Susan B. Anthony became an editor of a paper called The Revolution after co-founding the American Equal Rights Association with her friend Elizabeth Cady Stanton. The paper's motto was, "Men, their rights, and nothing more; women, their right, and nothing less". This paper was important because it raised awareness for women's rights and equality.
  • National Woman Suffrage Association

    After women's suffrage was still not passed by Congress in the 14th and 15th amendments, Stanton and Anthony founded the National Woman Suffrage Association. This is significant because they intended to pass a constitutional amendment giving women the right to vote.
  • Arrest

    Anthony was fined $100 after she voted with her three sisters. She never paid this fine and through this, the women's suffrage movement began to gain popularity. Anthony and Matilda Joslyn Gage, another suffragist, co-wrote The Declaration of Rights which Anthony was able to deliver at the Centennial of the Nation's Independence after her famous arrest.
  • Women's Suffrage Associations

    The National Woman Suffrage Association and the American Woman Suffrage Association were the two largest associations in the nation. Anthony helped merge these two associations together creating the National American Woman Suffrage Association. She was their leader until 1900 and 6 years later she passed away at the age of 86, 14 years before the 19th Amendment was passed giving women the right to vote
