7. The Future

Susan B. Anthony eloquently expressed her feelings when she stated, “Oh, if I could but live another century and see the fruition of all the work for women: There is so much yet to be done.” Anthony would be so amazed at how far women have come in the last century. Since her life, women have gained the right to vote, made huge headways in the workplace, and even governed some countries. It truly is amazing at how far women have come in the last 100 years. However, as Anthony asserted, “There is so much yet to be done.” Even though there are women in the U.S.

congress, they only make up 19 percent of the total representatives. Also, women still consistently earn less than men in the workplace. These are just a couple of the areas in which there is still work to be done for women’s rights. With how far women came in the last 100 years, just think how far they will go in the next 10 years!

Susan B. Anthony was a strong woman who led the early Woman’s Rights Movement. She is a woman to admire, and her words are truly inspirational. Reading her words make me so proud to be a woman, and they make me so thankful that so many women before me worked for the rights I now have. Which quote of Susan B. Anthony’s do you find to be the most inspirational?
