Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth founded the National Woman Suffrage Assoication in 1869. Anthony, Elizabeth, and others refused to support the 14th Amendment- allowing every man to vote, because it did not give women the ballot. They formed the NWSA, to work for women's suffrage on the federal level and to also have more extensive institutional changes, such as, granting property rights when women got married.

Susan and Elizabeth started publishing a newspaper, The Revolution in Rochester, about the movement. In the newspaper they had a title "men their rights, and nothing more; women, their rights, and nothing less," and the aim of estblishing "justice for all." It was the official publication of the National Woman Suffrage Assoication, which was to secure women's enfranchiments through federal constitutional amendment.

Susan B. Anthony and 15 other women got arrested for illegal voting. Susan B. Anthony was then sent for trial. Unfortuneately lost, but her courage during the trial gained a lot of respect for her.

Susan B. Anthony was one of the most important people during the women's suffrage because she made associations to help with the cause, she made reflections on what was wrong with not being able to vote, and she never gave up.
