Happy Birthday, Aunt Susan!

The Long Island Woman Suffrage Association visited a local fourth grade last week to talk about the contributions of Susan B. Anthony and to make colorful birthday cards in honor of her 200th Birthday on February 15th. We then sent some to the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum in Adams, MA, and some to the Susan B. Anthony House in Rochester NY.

We received this thoughtful thank you and photo from the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum, the home where she was born and spent the early years of her life. Although it is only about ten years old, the museum is doing a great job keeping the work and spirit of Susan B. Anthony alive. It is so important for youngsters to learn about these women who worked so tirelessly to secure political equality for us all.

And besides that, we all had fun! Thanks to all the teachers and children involved.

    I visited the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum, last fall, and was much impressed by the collection, its display, the descriptive signage, and the nice, knowledgeable people . . . also an enticing gift shop đŸ™‚

    How wonderful! Thanks to the Long Island Woman Suffrage Association who took the time to introduce those 4th graders to SBA, who spent most of her living years in Rochester NY. I am a board member of the SBA Birthplace Museum and a retired teacher and principal. In NYS all forth graders study their local and state history. I live 3 miles away from Seneca Falls, the birthplace of the women’s right to vote! I absolutely LOVE Seneca Falls and its women’s history. Alice Paul in 1922 also kicked off the ERA at the Presbyterian Church in Seneca Falls. If any of you women come to Seneca Falls, please contact me. I would love to give you a personal tour of the village. There is much to see and do with the early suffragists!!
