Who was Susan B. Anthony?

Susan B. Anthony was a prominent leader in the 19th century women's rights movement.

She was a strong advocate of a woman's right to vote and she gave from 75 to 100 speeches a year throughout the United States and Europe.

In 1979 Susan B. Anthony became the first woman to appear on a U.S. circulating coin when she replaced President Eisenhower on the one dollar coin.
