February 15th


Born this day in 1820, Susan B. Anthony. The Mother of the Suffrage Movement in the United States. Anthony died in 1906, and the 19th Amendment was added to the Constitution in 1920. To read more about Anthony visit, www.susanbanthonyhouse.org

On this day in 1879, President Hayes signed the bill allowing women lawyers to argue cases before the Supreme Court. (remember, in 1873, the Supreme Court ruled women incapable of being lawyers- it went against their nature! see Feb. 12th entry)
