    Stanton and Anthony's fight for women's voting rights continues with Anthony's arrest for "illegally" voting in 1872. Finally in 1920 the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote is passed. Neither woman would live to witness it.

This is not just a story of history of history, it's about two women who devoted their lives to the cause. The persona l details made them more relatable . Both of these women should. be celebrated and taught about in our schools.
