The Original "Lady in Red"
Susan B. Anthony's birthday is February 15th. Ms. Anthony was known to wear a red shawl as she traveled around the country on her speaking engagements.
If you have a chance to get a hold of a red shawl, consider wearing it between now and Valentine's Day. When people note the color or ask if it related to the lover's holiday, you can bring up the subject of the famous Suffragette.
It's a small way to bring history and women's rights into a conversation. It helps people to think about the way the world has changed and how hard people worked in the past to affect those changes.
Remembering a mighty American hero is never a bad thing. Especially now, we need to hold on and celebrate the memory of all those heroes whenever we have a chance.
Thank you, Susan B., Sojourner, and Lucretia. Thank you for being the sort of "outrageous" women that Republicans would decry and for making it possible for even women to become stupid Republicans.
support and spread the word.
. . .They can go ahead and wear a red shawl. Men get chilly shoulders, too. And think of the opportunity to talk about Anthony.
thanks, I'll just go with my own idea.
