Susan B. Anthony: A Reader's Theater Script

Nicknamed “the Moses of Her Sex”, Susan B. Anthony was a civil rights leader involved with the antislavery movement and the women’s rights and suffrage movement. She caused quite a commotion when, in 1872, she tried to do something most unusual for a woman. She attempted to vote in a presidential election.

Great for American History lesson, for women’s history month, or for a biography day!
