Susan B. Anthony
By: Oscar R.
New York, Grade 6



Susan B. Anthony taught school in New Rochelle and Canajoharie, NY, and discovered that male teachers were paid several times her salary. She devoted her first reform efforts to anti-slavery and to temperance, the campaign to curb alcohol. But when she rose to speak in a temperance convention, she was told, ''The sisters were not invited here to speak!'' Anthony promptly enlisted in the cause of women's rights.
