The author discussed her book Failure Is Impossible: Susan B. Anthony In Her Own Words, published by Times Books. Marking the 175th anniversary of Ms. Anthony’s birth and the 75th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment granting women the right to vote, the book depicts the most famous suffragist through her own written and spoken words. "We (women) now have nearly equality of rights everywhere. They let us work everywhere, but only give us half pay," she wrote in the 1800s. More responsible than anyone for getting women the vote, she also dealt with many issues still crucial to women today: equal opportunity, political representation, domestic violence, child rearing, and financial autonomy. Ms. Anthony crisscrossed the country to give speeches and lead rallies well into her eighties. close
