Detail: “The world is my country, to do good is my religion”–Isabella Beecher Hooker, 1904, Sewall Collection, Library of Congress
Isabella Beecher Hooker and Susan B. Anthony
These women are remarkable, and their history of fighting for women’s rights should always be remembered and celebrated. Keep them in your hearts and minds and let them be your motivation to continue fighting for the liberation and equity of women.
“Now wouldn’t it be splendid for us to be free and equal citizens, with the power of the ballot to back our hearts, heads and hands,” Anthony wrote to Isabella Beecher Hooker in 1874. “I can hardly wait. The good fates though are working together to bring us into this freedom.”
This is just part of one letter written during the suffragist movement that has been recently discovered and acquired by the University of Rochester. You can read more about them on the New York Times article.
