Susan B. Anthony Day 2020 #SusanBAnthony #SusanBAnthonyDay #SusanB200
One of americas greatest revolutionaries Susan B Anthony was born 200 years ago today! 2020 is also the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment passing which gave women the right to vote. Susan B. Anthony played an important role in the American Women’s Suffrage movement. She was devoted to gender equality and spent her life working for women’s right to vote in the United States.
The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, which prevents a woman from being denied the right to vote on the basis of sex. This historic centennial aligns with two other historic events—Susan B. Anthony’s 200th birthday and the Anthony Museum’s 75th anniversary.
This website acknowledges each of these significant anniversaries, and showcases events and programs that commemorate and celebrate them. Please bookmark this site and visit regularly as it will be updated throughout 2020 as new events are announced.
