“There will never be complete equality until women themselves help to make laws and elect lawmakers.”-Susan B. Anthony
2020 is a special year.
People have celebrated the birthday of Susan B. Anthony, one of the most notable women’s rights and anti-slavery activists, on February 15, ever since her days in Rochester, New York, where she spent her 40 most active years, and where she is now buried. Born in 1820, we mark the 200th anniversary of her birth, but also the 100th anniversary of the passage of the “Anthony Amendment” in 1920, enshrining women’s right to vote. A luncheon is held in her honor, every year; this year, to mark the special occasion, a dinner will be held on February 12, at the Joseph A. Floreano Riverside Convention Center, where producer, musician, author, and CEO Tena Clark will be the keynote speaker.
As the designer of a collection inspired by a pioneering female lawmaker, I naturally wanted to be involved in the celebration of the woman who paved the way for Louise to be able to vote and create laws herself. We are very pleased to donate a custom suit from the Louise Collection; attendees at the dinner who make a donation of $100 or more will be eligible to win this suit, and donations will benefit the Susan B Anthony House and Museum.
