Anna Howard Shaw - Later Years and Death

Later Years and Death

Shaw continued to lecture for the suffrage cause for the remaining years of her life.

During World War I, Shaw 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.

Shaw died of pneumonia at her home in Moylan, Pennsylvania at the age of seventy-two, only a few months before Congress ratified the Nineteenth Amendment to the US Constitution.
