abstract
Ethical reasoning and moral courage are two very important characteristics of members of the accounting profession. However, realization of and behaving with ethical reasoning and moral courage are two distinct concepts. There are many famous figures throughout history who have exhibited ethical reasoning and moral courage including Susan B. Anthony. Studying the life of this morally courageous individual, much can be learned and even applied to the accounting profession. Specifically, certain decisions and behaviors made by Anthony can be generally applied to many situations and provide examples of ethical and moral decision making and behavior. Although recent scandals have shed a negative light on the accounting profession, it is up to the present and future generations of those in the accounting field to act in an ethical and morally courageous manner in order to rebuild and continue to build trust in and respect towards the accounting profession.
