Amanda Sanford Hickey, MD

(1838–1894) Amanda is one of the female physicians listed in the History of Woman Suffrage. A prominent physician in Auburn, NY, she helped form the Auburn Political Equality Club. Amanda also organized the Cayuga County Political Equality Club, whose members consorted with the likes of outspoken suffragists such as Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Amelia Bloomer.

Amanda's obituary declared her, “an ardent believer and earnest worker in the cause of universal suffrage.” Her dedication to the advancements of women’s health and her advocacy for equality were important and will continue to inspire those headed down the same path.
