February 15th Susan B. Anthony Day

Today, in 1820, Susan B. Anthony was born and so to was the legend that helped win women the right to vote and gain many, though not all, the rights men had in the US. They should ave had them all the time but that’s another story and another battle to fight at another time. She was arrested in 1872 for casting her vote for President in a never ending attempt to make it understood women had rights, and a brain, as well as men. She even made it onto a coin to commemorate her efforts to gain equal rights. Something tells me she would rather have had the right to vote than have her face on a coin that apparently few cared about.

How to celebrate – Study Susan B. Anthony’s attempts to gain equal rights for women. Throw Anthony a birthday party today! See if you can find any of the Susan B. Anthony dollar coins.
