Family Life
In November 1882, Harriot Stanton married an English businessman by the name of William H. Blatch. They lived in England for 20 years. When they returned to the U.S. in 1902, she became involved in the Women's Trade Union League and the National American Woman Suffrage Association. And in 1907, she founded the Equality League of Self-Supporting Women. In this photo, you can see Harriot Blatch in the middle of Wall Street, speaking to the crowds about giving women the same rights as men. In 1917, she was able to vote--something her mother fought for her entire life.
