Susan B. Anthony, the woman who spent 60 years of her life trying to get women the right to vote, resides in the Mount Hope Cemetery in Rochester, New York, as she has for the last 110 years.
On most Election Days, women who pick up their “I voted” sticker, head for the cemetery to remember why they could.
Yesterday’s New York primary was no different.
At each election, the Thank You Susan B. Anthony Facebook page lights up with appreciation.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
