Susan B. Anthony and Women's History In-Person
Michelle Furlano will lead a discussion of the work of Susan B. Anthony. Anthony was a nineteenth-century lecturer, author, and leading figure in the women’s rights and women’s suffrage movements. Not only did she advocate for women’s political, economic, and social rights, but she also published a history of the woman’s suffrage movement that became an important contribution to the writing of women’s history. Since her death, women and women’s rights organizations have used Anthony’s image, name, and history in the continuing fight for women’s equality and allowing her contributions to women’s fight for equality and women’s history to endure.
Michelle Furlano holds a PhD in history from the University of Rochester. Previously, she studied at the University of Toronto and worked in the Heritage and Museum sector.
