Winifred Beecher Howe was a women's rights activist during the early 20th century.

History[edit]

Lisa wanted to go and see her memorial. She explained that Howe led the Floor Mop Rebellion of 1910 and appeared on the highly unpopular 75-cent piece.

Behind the Laughter[edit]

She is most probably based on two real-life 19th century American abolitionists and social activists, Harriet Beecher Stowe and Julia Ward Howe. Both advocated in their works and public life for the end of slavery and for women's suffrage. Her apeareance on the 75 cent piece is a reference to the Susan B. Anthony dollar
