Susan B. Anthony's Birthday

Valentine's Day made me think of the days when some women put a little more weight on Susan B. Anthony's birthday the next day. The YWCA used to hold a breakfast to mark the occasion and a very diverse group of women attended. One of my favorite photos is of myself and my daughter at one of those breakfasts.
Women have come far from the days when Susan B. Anthony got arrested for daring to vote. But it's good to recall the struggle and honor those brave suffragettes who fought for our rights.
