Charlotte Beebe was educated at Wilbraham Academy. She was associated with Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton as a worker for suffrage for women, and became known as an eloquent and forceful public speaker. She was a founder of the Sorosis Club, and was elected its president in 1870 and re-elected five times. She devoted much time and effort to securing a permanent foundation for it, and was instrumental in organizing the Association for the Advancement of Women that was formed by it in 1873. She instituted lectures on health and dress reform, suggested and aided in preparing entertainments for various purposes, and assisted many women in obtaining public recognition. She lived abroad with her husband in 1875-1900, but despite living outside America, she maintained her interest in the elevation of her sex and sought every opportunity to labour for it.
