Remembering Susan B. Anthony on International Women's Day


    This is the room where Susan B. Anthony was arrested for voting illegally in 1872. Her home on Madison Street in Rochester is now a museum.

    Rochester, N.Y. -- On this International Women's Day, we explored the legacy of one of the most famous women in American history.

    Susan B. Anthony is well known for her work in the women's suffrage movement. That included her 1872 arrest at her home in Rochester for attempting to vote in the presidential election, which was illegal for women at the time.

    That home now serves as museum honoring her legacy. Ashley Doerzbacher visited the Susan B. Anthony Museum & Home on Madison Street this morning to learn more about Anthony's impact around the world and what you can find at the museum.
