Action HeroIn comic books, superheroes save the day quickly. There’s a big “Pow” followed by a “Kurthwop” and “Yoink”. But for real-life heroes, the fight lasts a lot longer than a panel. Often, the fight lasts a lifetime. For Susan B Anthony, that fight started when she attended a suffragette event with her family and the age of twenty-eight. She was instantly inspired. Soon, she was the one making speeches but that’s not all. She wrote articles, organized marches, and eventually, she was arrested for defying authority and casting her ballot in an election. Some people would have assumed going to jail would stop a proper Victorian woman but Susan knew her arrest simply brought more attention to her cause. Susan B Anthony didn’t let anyone or anything stop her until her death in her late eighties. If fifty-eight years of devoted social action doesn’t make you an action hero, what does?Design & DetailsThe perfect way to celebrate Susan B. Anthony’s cause, this suffragette costume would have looked right at place on the streets of 19th Century New York.
