February 15: Susan B. Anthony Day

Susan B. Anthony was born February 15, 1820. Although we remember her primarily for her work promoting women’s rights, she was also an abolitionist (arguing for civil rights around the time of the Civil War). Susan B. Anthony Day celebrates her birthday and the women’s suffrage movement.
