Anna Howard Shaw
(b. February 14, 1847 in England d. July 2, 1919)
Anna Howard Shaw was a leading United States civil rights leader, and the first female Methodist minister in the United States.

She emigrated (1851) to the United States in early childhood and grew up on a farm in Michigan. She received a degree in theology (1878) and one in medicine (1885) from Boston Univ. Although the Methodist Episcopal Church refused to allow her to preach, she was ordained (1880) by the Methodist Protestant denomination. She had filled several pastorates in Massachusetts when, in 1888, she met Susan B. Anthony and from then on devoted her life to working for woman suffrage. She was vice president at large (18921904) and president (190415) of the National American Woman Suffrage Association. In Anthony's last years, she was her constant associate. Dr. Shaw campaigned in every state where a suffrage measure was under consideration; she was one of the most effective speakers of the movement.

She was also active in the temperance movement, heading the Woman's Christian Temperance Union for a few years.

During World War I, she was head of the Women's Committee of the United States Council of National Defense, for which she became the first woman to earn the Distinguished Service Medal.

In 2000, she was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame.
