History Talks: Suffrage 1872-Susan B. Anthony Votes

History Talks: Suffrage 1872 - Susan B Anthony Votes
Wednesday, January 20, at 5:00pm

The year 1872 was a tough one for Susan B. Anthony. For much of the year, she warred with her partner in the fight for suffrage, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, over the woman running for president that year, Victoria Woodhull. And when three major parties held conventions that year, she desperately tried to persuade each to put a women’s suffrage plank in its platform, only to be rebuffed by all. As the campaigns proceeded, she returned to her Rochester home, her heart and soul aching. But with Election Day approaching, she pulled herself together, rounded up her sisters, and said WE’RE GOING TO VOTE! Hear her story with GNPS member and author Bill Greer.
