Hundreds of Women are Honoring Susan B. Anthony’s Grave

Suffrage leader Susan B. Anthony tried to cast her vote in the election of 1872, but was arrested and fined $100. This election, hundreds of visitors, mainly women, have been lining up to put “I Voted” stickers on her gravestone. The graveyard, located in Rochester, New York, is even planning on staying open until 9 PM tonight instead of the normal 5:30 PM.

Unfortunately, Anthony passed away 14 years before women earned the right to vote in 1920. Rochester’s mayor, who has the cool name Lovely A. Warren, placed a “thank you” plaque next to the grave after Clinton earned the Democratic nomination in July, and said yesterday that Anthony “would have wanted to be a part of the significant history this year’s election holds for women.”
