Susan B. Anthony

Fecha de nacimiento: 15. Febrero 1820
Fecha de muerte: 13. Marzo 1906

Susan Brownell Anthony fue una feminista y sufragista estadounidense. Defensora de los derechos civiles, jugó un importante papel en la lucha por los derechos de la mujer y el derecho de voto femenino en el siglo XIX en Estados Unidos.[1]​

Fue presidenta de la Asociación Nacional pro Sufragio de la Mujer, organización que creó junto a Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Su objetivo era demostrar que las mujeres eran capaces de mantenerse unidas bajo la única base de su "womanhood" o identidad de género. Su éxito fue tal que en 1925 agrupaba a treinta y seis millones de mujeres pertenecientes a asociaciones feministas de todos los países.[2]​

Susan Anthony y otras 14 mujeres consiguieron registrarse para las elecciones presidenciales de 1872 y votar. Fueron arrestadas una semana después por votar ilegalmente.[3]​

Viajó varios miles de kilómetros a través de los Estados Unidos y Europa dando de 75 a 100 discursos por año sobre el sufragio y el derecho de la mujer al mismo durante 45 años aproximadamente. Viajó en carruajes, vagones, trenes, mulas, bicicletas, diligencias, transbordadores y, en ocasiones, en trineos.

Falleció en Rochester, Nueva York, el 13 de marzo de 1906. Actualmente, sus restos se encuentran inhumados en el cementerio de Mount Hope.

Context: The one distinct feature of our Association has been the right of the individual opinion for every member. We have been beset at every step with the cry that somebody was injuring the cause by the expression of some sentiments that differed with those held by the majority of mankind. The religious persecution of the ages has been done under what was claimed to be the command of God. I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do to their fellows, because it always coincides with their own desires.

„Resistance to tyranny ius obedience to God“

—  Susan B. Anthony
This statement was widely used as an abolitionist and feminist slogan in the 19th century and has sometimes been attributed to Anthony, who famously used it, but cited it as an "old revolutionary maxim"; it has also frequently been attributed to Thomas Jefferson, and to Benjamin Franklin, who has been cited as having proposed it as the motto of the United States, as well as to English theologian William Tyndale. The earliest definite citations of a source yet found in research for Wikiquote indicates that it was declared by Massachusetts Governor Simon Bradstreet after the overthrow of Dominion of New England Governor Edmund Andros in relation to the "Glorious Revolution" of 1688, as quoted in Official Report of the Debates and Proceedings in the State Convention: assembled May 4th, 1853 (1853) by the Massachusetts Constitutional Convention, p. 502. It is also quoted as a maxim that arose after the overthrow of Andros in A Book of New England Legends and Folk Lore (1883) by Samuel Adams Drake. p. 426
