Susan B. Anthony's 204th Birthday Party!

Held on February 18th, 2024, at the Cotton Club Museum and Cultural Center, we enjoyed appetizers, cake, community, and music by "Resonance," an all-women acapella ensemble whose songs, to and about women, were uplifting and inspiring.  The program can be seen here. Many were in attendance as we recognized Black Suffragists, whose struggles and contributions have been too often overlooked.  Susan B. Anthony (played by June Littler) made an appearance, reminding us that, "the price of freedom is eternal vigilance."  Pictures are here. Please mark your calendars for the Annual Women's Equality Luncheon scheduled for August 24th, 2024.



The Friends of Susan B. Anthony's Annual Women's Equality Day Luncheon.

Standing UP for Women's Rights

On Saturday, August 26, 2023, we celebrated the 175th anniversary of the women’s rights convention in Seneca Falls, New York in 1848 and the 103th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (woman suffrage) 1920.  We invited the community to this event, which began as an informal birthday party for Susan B. Anthony over forty years ago, and is now held in conjunction with the anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. The luncheon featured an award presentation and a speaker.
