Susan B. Anthony Day
Thursday, February 15, 2018
February 15 is Susan B Anthony Day - Susan B. Anthony Day is a commemorative holiday to celebrate the birth of Susan B. Anthony and women's suffrage in the United States. Do you think women take for granted the right to vote? Do you think other women should also be celebrated for giving women the right to vote?
I think some people, both women and men, do take for granted the right to vote. Voter turnout should be much higher than it actually is. Personally, I didn’t always vote when I was younger, but as I got older I realized the importance of it, and now I always vote. It is both a right and a responsibility as a citizen.
As for whether other women should be celebrated for giving women the right to vote, I’m sure a lot of women contributed to the cause. Unfortunately I hardly know anything about the history of it. I don’t think I was ever taught about it in school.
