After serving as the National Woman Suffrage Association's president for more than 20 years, Elizabeth resigned from the post in 1892 at age 77. This quote is drawn from her farewell speech, delivered nearly 30 years before women won the vote.
This tireless crusader for women's rights was one of the abolitionists who organized the Seneca Falls Convention that put forth "The Declaration of Sentiments." Famously teaming up with Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth led the campaign for US women's suffrage. She may not have lived to see the cause behind her life's work become a reality, but her legacy lives on as a feminist icon.
