THE STORY:

In 1945, a handful of women decided there should be a memorial to Susan B. Anthony, who dedicated her life so that we could enjoy the rights and freedoms that are now ours. They purchased the house in Rochester, NY, that had been her home for 40 years. It's where she was arrested for voting in 1872 and it was the headquarters of the National American Woman Suffrage Association. Last year, the Anthony House had visitors from all 50 states and 30 countries. This National Historic Landmark has priceless artifacts like her trademark alligator purse and black silk dress.

Yet, the Anthony House has little financial support. They keep her legacy alive much the way she did her work for human rights: one day at a time. A handful of staff organize the education and women's initiative programs, train the volunteers, and care for treasures in the Museum.

The Anthony House is participating in the "RaiseforWomen" Challenge currently underway thanks to the Skoll Foundation, Half the Sky Movement, and the Huffington Post. They are one of 100 charities, all focused on women's issues, that are part of this national campaign. The Anthony House has raised $3,500, but their goal is to raise $20,000 through this opportunity and the deadline is June 4!

"When I am gone. . .pass by, and go on with the work" until every woman and girl around the globe has the rights and freedoms she championed. Honor Susan B. Anthony by saying "Thank you!" with a gift.
