Mount Hope Cemetery in Rochester, N.Y., has seen an influx of visitors today. The election of America's first female president has never been more within reach, and crowds of people are flocking to the grave of 19th century suffragette Susan B. Anthony to pay respects and leave their "I Voted" stickers on her tombstone.
Anthony, a feminist activist, social reformer and abolitionist, was integral to the women's suffrage movement of the late 1800s. The movement contributed to the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920, which gave women nationwide the right to vote.
However, her movement fought for the voting rights of white women, excluding African Americans. Anthony, who died in 1906, once said, "I will cut off this right arm of mine before I will ever work or demand the ballot for the negro and not the woman.”
