Susan B. Anthony Votes

Susan B. Anthony voted in Rochester, NY, on this day, Nov. 5th, in 1872. “Well,” she wrote to Elizabeth Cady Stanton, “I have been & gone & done it!! Positively voted.”  During a visit to Rochester, I photographed this marker that reads: Susan B. Anthony Voted Here

At a shop on this site, on November 5, 1872, Susan B. Anthony and 14 women from this neighbor voted in the presidential election. Two week later, Miss Anthony was arrested in her home on Madison Street for this illegal action. Women struggled for 48 more years before the ratification of the 19th Amendment, making it legal for women to vote. That amendment is known as the Susan B. Anthony Amendment.
