Susan and Elizabeth formed the National Woman Suffrage Association, open to women only. Their goal was to add an amendment to the Constitution that allowed women to vote.
They published newspapers and books supporting their cause. The group also held state and national conventions to raise awareness of suffrage.
They founded the International Council of Women in 1888 and invited women from around the world to come together to discuss equality together. The meeting resulted in the formation of an even larger women's rights group, the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA). Susan was elected the president of the group in 1892.
Susan B. Anthony founded the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA). The document above was created by NAWSA in support of women's suffrage.
