From Marguerite Kearns about birthday parties for Susan B. Anthony:
It has been a tradition for decades to hold a birthday party for Susan B. Anthony. My grandmother Edna Kearns served on an Anthony birthday committee in 1915, and these parties continue. The National Women’s History Alliance circulates lists of birthdays for women monthly. You can sign up for their birthday blasts.
And the Susan B. Anthony Museum & House in Rochester, New York has a fundraising birthday party for Susan every year in February. Support birthday parties for Susan B. Anthony!
