In an election where we could possibly elect the nation’s first female president, women are taking time to honor a heroine of the women’s suffragist movement, Susan B. Anthony. Anthony, played a key role in fighting for women’s rights, and was arrested in the presidential election of 1872 along with fifty other women as they attempted to vote in Rochester, NY.  Having died in 1906, Anthony never got the chance to vote legally vote. The U.S. Constitution was ratified on August 18, 1920, and the 19th Amendment granted American women the right to vote. In tribute people are leaving “I voted” stickers on her grave in Rochester as tribute to her.
