Who is anthony?

Famous quotes containing the word anthony:

    I hope there will be no effort to put up a shaft or any monument of that sort in memory of me or of the other women who have given themselves to our work. The best kind of a memorial would be a school where girls could be taught everything useful that would help them to earn an honorable livelihood; where they could learn to do anything they were capable of, just as boys can. I would like to have lived to see such a school as that in every great city of the United States.
    —Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906)

    ... even if the right to vote brought to women no better work, no better pay, no better conditions in any way, she should have it for her own self-respect and to compel man’s respect for her.
    —Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906)

    Better lose me than lose a state.
    —Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906)
