Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony were two of America's most important leaders in the initial quest for women's rights in the nineteenth century. Both women had been active in other aspects of antebellum reform (including the antislavery and temperance movements) before meeting in 1851. The meeting confirmed their own views that the "maleness" of the nation's laws needed to be challenged and intensified their determination to build a mass movement for women's rights. Although they did not live to see the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment, which gave women the vote, Stanton and Anthony built the foundation for women's suffrage in the twentieth century.
Frederick Douglass (1818-1895)—was one of the most remarkable figures in American history—was born into slavery in Maryland, escaped to the North when he was 20, and lived abroad for two years until his freedom was purchased by friends. The self-taught Douglass became a prolific writer, publishing the book Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass in 1845, as well as founding the newspaper North Star and editing it in the abolitionist cause for 17 years. Douglass has become known as one of the greatest American thinkers and orators of his age who worked tirelessly for the abolition of slavery in this country.
