This carte de visite shows Daniel Read Anthony, (1824-1904), brother of suffragist Susan B. Anthony. He migrated to the Kansas territory, in 1854, as a member of the New England Emigrant Aid Company and settled in Leavenworth, Kansas; where he established a long and successfully career as a newspaper editor and publisher.

The Status of Woman, Past, Present, and Future.

The Status of Woman, Past, Present, and Future.
Creator: Anthony, Susan B. (Susan Brownell), 1820-1906
Date: May 1897
Susan B. Anthony, in this article published in The Arena, reflects on the efforts to change the status of women over the last 50 years since the Seneca Falls convention in July 1848. Anthony outlines the status of woman at that time, which was restricted in all areas of life. She then reviews some of the changes that had occurred, with most of the changes occuring at the state level. She writes that efforts are being focused on a Sixteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and believes that until "the right protective of all other rights--the ballot" is achieved, women must continue to work together to that purpose.
