        Suffragists | Ken Burns: Not for Ourselves Alone

        View images featuring Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and other suffragists. These early feminists and fast friends dedicated to advancing the rights of all women in the 19th century. Through their efforts in New York State, the Married Women’s Property Law was amended in 1860 to allow women the right to own property, a business, and to manage their own income. Anthony and Stanton also fought for the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which in 1865 abolished slavery in the United States. They worked to advance marriage and divorce reform, and to expand educational opportunities for women.
