Susan B. Anthony

(1820 - 1906)

Dedicating her life to “breaking the political chain that binds all women in subjection to men,” Susan B. Anthony attended her first women’s rights convention in 1852. Fourteen years later, Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton founded the American Equal Rights Association.

Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world: it gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel. The picture of free, untrammeled womanhood.

—Susan B. Anthony, 1896
