Susan B. Anthony Silver Dollar

Susan B. Anthony was born in 1820 to a Quaker family in New England. Quakers practiced equality between men and women and did not believe in violence or slavery.

Although Susan B. Anthony was not alive to see the passing of the 19th Amendment in 1920, her efforts were directly responsible for it.
