Susan B. Anthony will soon be appearing on $10 bills alongside other historic female leaders who have worked to give women the right to vote. And Anthony certainly hasn't been forgotten in upstate New York where she did much of her work. Several "I Voted" stickers were placed on her tombstone at Mt. Hope Cemetery in Rochester following last Tuesday's primary. Anthony, who persuaded the University of Rochester to admit women in 1900, lived and worked in Rochester while fighting for a variety of women's rights, including the right to vote, wage equality, and the abolition of slavery. The stickers were removed on Wednesday, but not before images of Anthony's tombstone were shared on social media.
