1847: Anna Howard Shaw, one of the most influential leaders of the women's suffrage movement, is born in Newcastle-on-Tyne, England. Shaw, who was also a physician and the first ordained female Methodist minister in the United States, joined the National Woman Suffrage Association in 1888 at the encouragement of Susan B. Anthony and was a driving force in the organization.
