77. 苏珊·布朗奈尔·安东尼做过什么?
为妇女主权而战
为公民主权而战


Explanation:
  Sometimes the United States makes special coins (or pieces of money made out of metal) that honor (or give special recognition or importance to) people in American history. Our one-dollar coin has a picture of Susan B. Anthony on it. Susan B. Anthony was famous because she fought for women’s rights, which would allow women to do the same things that men were allowed to do. Specifically, she fought for suffrage (or the right to vote) for women.
  美国政府有时会发行一些特殊的硬币来纪念历史上重要的人物。其中一美元银币上的肖像就是苏珊·布朗奈尔·安东尼。她因争取妇女主权而闻名于世,要求妇女有和男人同等的权利,特别是投票权。
  Susan B. Anthony was born in 1820. She was part of the temperance movement, which was a group of people who believed that people should drink very little or no alcohol. She wanted to change the laws about selling and using alcohol, but women were not allowed to vote at that time. This frustrated her, or made her feel angry because it was unfair. So she began to fight for women’s right to vote.
  苏珊·布朗奈尔·安东尼出生于1820年。她是禁酒运动的共同创立者,这个组织提倡人们少喝酒或不喝酒。她想要通过修改法律来限制酒的买卖和使用,但当时的女人是没有投票权的。这件事深深地挫败了她,她对这种不公平的待遇表示愤慨。于是她就踏上了为争取妇女投票权而战的征程。
  Susan often spoke to the public (or the people in a country) about why it was important for women to vote. She also wrote a weekly journal (or magazine) about it. In 1872, she voted in the presidential election even though it was illegal, and she was arrested (or forced to go to jail) for it. Susan also fought for other civil rights (or things that all people should be allowed to do). She fought against slavery and for the rights of black people. She also fought for other women’s rights, like the right to own property, which included lands or buildings, and women’s right to be paid well for working outside the home.
  苏珊经常为公众讲解妇女参政的重要性。她特地为此办了一个周刊。在1872年的总统大选中,她参加了投票,由于当时妇女投票时违法的,她被逮捕了。苏珊同时也为公民主权而战,反对奴隶制并争取黑人权利。还有其它一些女性权利,如土地所有权、妇女在家庭之外工作领薪水的权利。
  Susan was successful in getting women the right to vote, but she never knew it. Susan died 14 years before women actually got the right to vote. This happened in 1920, when the 19th Amendment (or change in law) to the U.S. Constitution was made. Susan never got to see the results of her work, but most historians attribute the approval of the 19th Amendment to her work, meaning that they think her work was one of the important reasons why the 19th Amendment was approved.

  苏珊为妇女获得合法投票权做出了巨大的贡献,但她却来不及享受这一成果。她先走了14年,没有等到妇女可以正式投票的那一刻。1920年,第十九条宪法修正案给予了女性投票权。苏珊终其一生都没有机会看到自己的斗争成果,但大部分的历史学家都将第十九条宪法修正案的顺利通过归功于她,正是因为她的努力,为这部修正案的通过投了强有力的一票。
