Voting rights was a family affair
** Daughter of Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1st generation suffragist)
She founded the Equality League of Self-Supporting Women, later called the Women's Political Union, whose membership was based on working women, both professional and industrial. The Equality League initiated the practice of holding suffrage parades and organized the first open-air suffrage rallies in thirty years. As many as 25,000 people marched in these parades.
